I announced the start more than a year ago, from Paris. I am currently in Berlin and this blog finally actually opens today – with political and gallant entry from the gouverneur Morris’s diary, an enthralling reading bringing European and American politics together and mixing them with Parisian business and leisure.
From today on, you will find here a fragment from an ocular witness’s account of the French Revolution. The date of each document will match the date of its appearance on this blog. However, I have decided to navigate freely between different years of the Revolution, from 1789 to 1799.
Time permitting, I will be commenting on the published fragments. You comments and reposts are very much welcome!
