Hard Hearts, Hard Rocks

This clock in Clemenceau's house mark the hour of his death in 1929.  He died in his home in Paris, and ordinarily a man of his stature would have been inhumed in the Panthéon, along side Voltaire, Rousseau, Hugo, Marie Curie, Jaurès, Zola, and other great heroes of the Republican ideal.

Georges Clemenceau never was one for glory, however.  He wanted to lie beside his father and family here in Vendée.  That's where he is today.
