❴ANATOMY OF A BARRICADE EVENT❵
❱❭ the coffin’s route across paris on tuesday, june 5, has been traced on the map. the procession departed at 10 am from the general’s house in the rue saint-honoré, not far from the place de la concorde. its intended trajectory would have followed the grands boulevards across the northern periphery of paris to the obligatory stop in the place de la bastille. soon after setting out, however, militants diverted the hearse to make a symbolic tour of the column in the place vendôme, in homage to lamarque’s close ties to napoléon. this was followed by a second unplanned stop, this time in the boulevard montmartre, where the horses were cut from the traces and replaced by students, military veterans, and decorated heroes of the july revolution, who vied for the honor of pulling the hearse. clearly the cloud — which, by some accounts, had swelled to more than 100,000 — was not allowing its enthusiasm to be dampened by the heavy rains that fell intermittently on this and the following day.
❱❭ once arrived on the place de la bastille, militants tried to convince the column of marchers that lamarque’s body should find its final resting place, not in his ancestral home in the landes near mont-de-marsan, but instead in the panthéon, in the heart of paris. others argued in favor of proceeding directly to the hôtel de ville to proclaim a new french republic. on the esplanade at the north end of the pont d’austerlitz, a series of speeches, delivered from a podium draped in black, further inflamed the crowd. after listening to the words of the marquis de lafayette, maréchal clausel, and representatives of the polish and italian expatriate communities, participants became aware of a spectral figure, towering above the crowd on a black stallion. tall and gaunt, with a long, cadaverous face and flowing mustache, he was dressed entirely in black. still as a ghost, he held aloft a red flag embroidered with a black border and the words “LIBERTY OR DEATH!” this apparition had an electrifying effect on the crowd, almost as if “…the holy spirit had descended upon them prematurely; they began to utter the strangest prophecies as the sight of the red flag, acting like a magic charm, caused them to leave of their senses.”
