Sydenham Published in History Today Volume 11 Issue 8 August 1961. It is some indication of the explosive character of French political life that its history is marked less by a chronology of years than by the memory of certain particularly momentous Days. From July 14th onwards, the great upheaval that we call the French Revolution has many such milestones, and among them the day of June 20th, 1792, has its own peculiar place. As soon as the danger of reaction receded, those Jacobins who supported Robespierre began to allege that his opponents, whom historians call the Girondins, had been responsible for the partial revolution of June 20th-it being partial both because it was inconclusive and because it was alleged to have had the limited objective of securing power for the Girondins alone.
Sydenham follows Bourdon’s political career from the final days of the old monarchy through Bourdon’s active participation in the Revolution. Bourdon was always aware that political development must be accompanied by educational change, and his lifelong interest in education is an integral part of his story. Sydenham, Professor Emeritus, Department of History, Carleton University, was the author of two lively general studies of the Revolutionary period, The French Revolution and The First French Republic, but is still known primarily for his seminal study of The Girondins. In contrast, this biography is sympathetic to one of their most notorious Montagnard opponents.
The Girondins (French: ), Girondists or Gironde were members of a loosely knit political faction during the French Revolution. From 1791 to 1793, the Girondins were active in the Legislative Assembly and the National Convention. Together with the Montagnards, they initially were part of the Jacobin movement. They campaigned for the end of the monarchy, but then resisted the spiraling momentum of the Revolution, which caused a conflict with the more radical Montagnards
