520    On March 11, 1793, about a thousand counterrevolutionary 
       rebels converged on the small French town of Machecoul and
       over the next six weeks killed many of its revolutionary 
       officials and supporters. The massacres at Machecoul 
       marked the beginning of a popular insurgency in western 
       France called the War of Vendee, in turn igniting the 
       ferocious republican response known today as the Terror. 
       This story explores why these small-town massacres 
       occurred, how they may have unfolded, and what the local 
       and national repercussions of the murders were. The author
       Edward J. Woell argues that more than any other factor, 
       religion stood at the center of the massacres: in their 
       origins during the late Old Regime, in their enactment 
       amid the wider revolutionary tumult, and in their 
       remembrance over the century that followed. Claiming a 
       greater significance to the episode than most historians 
       have acknowledged, Woell shows that the Machecoul 
       massacres "not only raise the most fundamental, profound, 
       and perplexing questions that scholars have sought to 
       answer, but they also embody the quintessential themes of 
       the French Revolution."
