Right place, right time

November 19, 2008

Late in July 1794 (the month of Thermidor in the new revolutionary calendar) the plotters challenged the man whom they secretly called the “dictator”. They howled him down on the floor of the convention and voted the arrest of the Robespierreist leaders.

    Well nyehh, I already saw this meme and liked it, so I posted my answers onto Lexie’s meme post, and so you’ll have to go over to Teenage Misanthropy and find his post if you want to know what was on page 56 of Earthquake Weather. 😛
