Louis-Lazare Hoche 1768-1797. French Revolution History.
Louis-Lazare Hoche was a French general of the Revolutionary who was known for his level-headed actions in the suppression of the revolt in the Vendée in 1795 as the “pacificateur de la Vendée”. Hoche was the son of a former soldier and garde-chenil du roi (presumably. Overseer of the royal hunting dogs). After the early death of his mother, he was raised by an aunt who also paid him an education. A priest from Saint-Germain-en-Laye fell on his scholastic zeal and intelligence; he gave him lessons in Latin and aroused his interest in the ancient writers and philosophers. Hoche was 15 years old stable boy in the écuries de Versailles (royal. Stables) and entered the regiment of the Gardes Françaises-16-one. Its origin from very humble background was no obstacle for an amazing career in the revolutionary army. With 24 years (according to the Revolutionary calendar), he was already in the rank of general. Hoche is said to have survived two duels and two attacks. Hoche was 1797 – after centuries of feudal rule – the first civil government chief of the left of the Rhine parts of the country. His name is inscribed on the Arc de Triomphe in Paris in the third column. One of the great, leading to the Arc de Triomphe Paris streets, the Avenue Hoche.

Marquis de Lafayette 1757-1834. Aristocrat and military officer.
Marie-Joseph-Paul-Yves-Roch-Gilbert du Motier, Marquis de La Fayette or Lafayette was a French general and politician. He took part on the side of the colonists on the American Revolutionary War and played an important role in the French Revolution. La Fayette came from a noble family in Chavaniac. His father died in 1770 at the Battle of Minden (Seven Years War). After her mother’s death in 1770 he was already 13 years old orphan, but had in the following because of the large fortune of his family no material restrictions and was able to pursue his inclinations. After the declaration of independence of the British colonies La Fayette went with a self-recruited volunteer force in 1777 to America. There he fought for American independence and its affiliates with the Enlightenment ideals of equality, freedom and justice. When he returned to France, the people gave him a triumphant welcome and Louis XVI. received him into the Assembly of Notables. Even in the United States La Fayette was (written Lafayette) celebrated as a great war hero. Under La Fayette’s influence adopted Louis XVI. the Edict of 1787 (tolerance), which was especially good to the Huguenots. On 11 July 1789 he presented the Draft of the Declaration of Human Rights, which he had developed with the assistance of Thomas Jefferson. La Fayette was taken responsibility for ensuring that the king could try to escape on June 20, 1791. Three days after the second anniversary of the storming of the Bastille he had the open fire on an angry crowd. This massacre on the Champ de Mars with dozens dead cost him much of his popularity. La Fayette died on 20 May 1834 at the age of 76 years in Paris and was buried in the cemetery Cimetière de Picpus. His name is inscribed on the Arc de Triomphe in Paris in the third column.
