CDR-1141: SR-Set: Episodes in French History: 1870-1871, The Siege of Paris and the Paris Commune

The Siege of Paris, a final episode in the Franco-Prussian War, led directly to the uprising that culminated in the Paris Commune. In the aftermath of the war, the disappointment in the French government by Paris workers and National Guards and their objection to continued presence of German troops brought about the establishment of the Paris Commune in April & May of 1871. These images illustrate events leading up to the Siege of Paris as well as the devastating events of the siege itself, and the consequential events of the Paris Commune. (April 2010)
