Killing the Executioner
It was on this day in 1794 that the French revolutionary Maximilien Robespierre, the primary driving force behind the regicide of His Most Christian Majesty King Louis XVI, was sent to the guillotine to be executed at the Place de la Revolution by his own former comrades grown weary if his tyranny and paranoid bloodlust. Couldn't have happened to a nicer fella. Vive l'France! On this occasion justice truly was served.
