Historical background


Satirical - WAR OF 1870 AND BATTLE OF SEDAN

During the 1870 war, the army of Chalons controlled by MacMahon account from August 15, the presence of Napoleon III and tries to come to the rescue of trapped Bazaine in Metz with the army of the Rhine. On 21 August, the army of Chalons left to join MacMahon but it is surrounded. Repeatedly beaten including Beaumont, the army is defeated at Sedan and surrounded by the Prussian chief Moltke and despite the efforts of Commander Lambert, wounded, fights with porpoises to the last cartridge. September 2, 1870, crushed by the fire of the German artillery, Napoleon III and 83,000 soldiers of the French army go to King of Prussia. On 3 September, Napoleon III and William I meet while Paris tells the defeat and captivity of the emperor. The demonstrations broke out shouting "lapse! Forfeiture". On 4 September, Napoleon III was deposed while a government of national defense is set up.
