Sample text

The sans. culottes themselves made the same distinction. Noting the intrigues that undermined the Sceaux Committee of Surveillance, the observer Rousseville, in his report on 2 s Messidor, year u, stresses the antagonism between the "silk-stockings" and the sans-culottes. Conventions of dress also pitted sans-eulottes against the muscadins [royalist sympathizers]. Arrested on 4 Prairial, year 111, for having said that "the blasted muscadins'll soon have a spade up there . " Costume was accompanied by particular social behavior.

The sans-culottes can be clearly defined only when compared to the aristocracy; when compared to the bourgeoisie, the distinction becomes less clear. Composed of many socially disparate elements, the sans-culottes were undermined by internal dissent, which explains both their inability to establish a coherent program and, in the last analysis, their political defeat. A fundamental hostility toward the aristocracy was not, however, unique to the sanS-Culottes. In 1789 it was also shared by all members of the former Third Estate.

Those who did not belong to the government openly exploited the antagonism between the rich and the sans-eulottes for political ends. Jacques Roux, and Hebert after him, orchestrated this theme with many variations. culottes formed an important mass of workers who could be pitted against government committees; there is no doubt that Hebert and his friends thought of using them to attain their goals. Jacques Roux had already written, "Ut redeat miseria abeat fortuna ruperbis," on the masthead of his Publiciste.
