The Revolution in Provincial France

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the Paris Jacobins' assumption of political control over French provinces in 1793. The Jacobins were able to take power after defeating the federalist leadership of Gironde. After Gironde's defeat, most municipalities and departments contended themselves with gestures of disapproval and petitions and avoided the path to open rebellion. The Jacobin government dissolved departmental administration and reorganized new municipal councils without local consultation.

Keywords:   Paris Jacobins, political control, French provinces, municipal council, local government, rebellion
