Description

The fighting action in this engraving features fixed bayonets, swords and cutlasses. The clothing indicates a date around the beginning of the 19th century, and there is a river, some barges, and soldiers or militia fighting to the death. A large fishing net hangs from one of the houses on the bank of the river. This is an engraving of the Nantes drownings ('noyades de Nantes'), a series of mass executions that accompanied the French Revolution in the winter of 1793-94. Details here seem to match other illustrations from that event. Victims were those who did not support the Revolution, particularly Catholic priests and nuns. Many people were drowned in the river Loire. Text on this illustration: Published May 1, 1818 by W Stockdale, 181 Piccadilly. I. Clark sculpt. I. Clark the engraver, was John Heaviside Clark (c. 1770-1863). In the 19th century a capital 'I' denoted a name such as 'Iohn' or 'Iames', John or James in today's currency.
