La Commune de Paris. Tuesday 21 March 1871

.The "Amis de l'Ordre" took to the streets today and demonstrated - "Friends of the Order", under this name the Parisians hostile to the Paris Commune grouped together -.

In another part of the city the government army retook possession of the fortress on Mont-Valérien, after the Prussian troops had left. This fort is about two kilometers from Paris and is part of the first defensive belt made up of sixteen fortresses. If the third belt is about 20 kilometers from the capital, the first belt is right around the city. The Prussians had broken through and occupied part of the city, bombing it to exhaust the population and the National Guard who were resisting the siege.
