Example text

Laboulaye spared no effort to make clear that French support for the Confederacy would be tantamount to a French alliance with its most despised enemy—Great Britain. Laboulaye's pamphlet, "The United States and France," argues this point, and details for the French population the British conspiracy behind the outbreak of the Civil War, a story that has been all but forgotten even in the United States today. Laboulaye recalled the global anti-British strategy embedded in the American-French alliance, inspired by the Marquis de Lafayette, that had created the United States nearly a century earlier: "When Louis XVI gave his assistance to the insurgent Americans, what was his intention but to avenge the insult that we received in Canada and to raise up on the shore of the Atlantic a people who September 1981 / CAMPAIGNER victory brought an outpouring of grief from the French people.

Laboulaye's republican faction took full advantage of the divisions within the ranks of the monarchists, counting on the base of support they had mobilized within the population as a whole. On January 25, 1875, Laboulaye took the floor of the National Assembly and passionately proposed the Wallon amendment for the establishment of a third French republic. He challenged the monarchy's competence to rule,' and warned that if the delegates did not back his motion foreign intervention and domestic upheavals resulting from the lack of real government would destroy France.

Moreover, 300,000 people visited the statue while it was under construction in Paris. Laboulaye was thus successful in focusing the politics of hundreds of thousands of his fellow Frenchmen away from the manipulated battles between the monarchists and the anarchists. Instead, French citizens were encouraged to look across the Atlantic toward America, where the Franco-American alliance had created the world's greatest republic. Just as he had in nis first lecture at the College of France, Laboulaye demanded of Frenchmen that they understand and act upon the eternal principles of natural law as the basis for their self-government.
