June 9: Revolution, Counter Revolution

The Revolution would not come to a democratic end, as it had hoped. Napoleon would take towart Empire. Charette would surely be happy to die before seeing the 'usurper' come to power. 'Happily' he did. He was captured by the republican forces a few hundred yards from here. His wounds were sealed here in La Chabotterie. Then he was taken to nearby Nantes, where he stood before a firing squad. This is his death mask. The firing squad was pretty effective.
