The period between the fall of Gironde, 31 May 1973, to the execution of Babeuf four years later saw the unfolding of the first modern class conflict. The new bourgeoisie back-tracked from the extreme democratic positions they took up during the revolution and came into open conflict with the the sansculottes, an embryonic proletariat who were pressing for the completion of the revolution.
