Cade la Commune de Toulouse

La Commune de Paris. Monday, March 27, 1871. Today in Paris is post-election day: the votes obtained by the candidates are counted and checked.

In the province, however, the early conclusion of the experience of the Commune deToulouse is determined. After only 48 hours, the revolution surrenders without bloodshed. The inability of the leaders and the disorganization of the National Guard caused the new prefect to put the rioters in fear by deploying three squadrons of cavalry, six hundred infantrymen and six cannons loaded with machine guns. At this point a mediation leads to the surrender of the insurgents in exchange for their impunity. This was a serious setback for Paris, which thus saw the possibility of the revolt spreading to the southwest of the country disappear.
