Alexandre Auguste Ledru-Rollin in Anaheim

Alexandre Auguste Ledru-Rollin was born into a well-to-do family. His grandfather, Nicolas-Philippe Ledru, had amassed a sizable fortune as a doctor whose treatments were of dubious efficacy (he took the name Comus and was described as a physicist, magician, illusionist and quack). Nevertheless, he made a lot of money, a sizable portion of which was passed to his grandson, Alexandre Auguste Ledru-Rollin. Ledru-Rollin was trained as an attorney and had just begun to practice when the Revolution of July 1830 broke out. He was immediately retained for the Republican defense and spent much of the next 10 years in that role. Eventually he tried to align himself with the working class but never fully succeeded in that role. He served very briefly as the head of state of France in 1848 where he helped establish universal suffrage. Ledru-Rollin was put forth as a Socialist candidate for president in 1849, but received few votes and fled to England following the turmoil after the election. He lived in England for 20 years before returning to France in 1870. Although he served in government again, most of his time was spent writing and editing for legal journals. He is relatively unknown today save for a metro station and an avenue that are named after him His grave is topped by a bronze bust by David d’Angers.

Virginia did nothing, citing poor finances and a recently signed treaty with some northern Tuscarora villages. Anaheim Metro Map South Carolina dispatched an army of thirty whites, led by John Barnwell and a multiethnic force of 500 Native Countrys, consisting primarily of Yamasees. During 1712, Barnwell’s army inflicted serious damage on the Tuscarora. On January 30, for instance, at a palisade called Fort Narhantes, Barnwell’s men stormed a Tuscarora stronghold, killing all the men inside. Barnwell lamented that the natives fighting with him took most of the plunder and slaves, writing that only one girl we got. Barnwell met the Tuscarora again at Catechna, a fortified town. The situation here was more complex, and Barnwell, his forces depleted by deserters, sued for peace and the release of white prisoners. Upon his return to New Bern, he expected to be commended for his performance, but no commendation came. Barnwell did, however, profit by selling some native peoples, assembled under the pretense of peace, into slavery. A larger force of South Carolinians, this time accompanied by around 1,000 Native Countrys, including many Cherokees, arrived in North Carolina in 1713. The Tuscarora people’s morale had flagged significantly when King Hancock (also known as Hencock) was enticed into negotiations with Tom Blount, the accommodationist chief of the Northern Tuscarora. Blount betrayed Hancock to the English, who promptly executed him.
