Emblem of the Sacred Heart worn by the
Royal and Catholic Armies
The genocide of the Catholic Royalists in the West of France has neither been forgotten by the people of Brittany, Maine and the Vendée, nor has it ever been acknowledged by the Revolutionary government of France. The general commanding les bleus (the Revolutionary army) reported to Paris that his men had bayoneted the pregnant women of the rebellion so that they would give birth to no more 'Counter-Revolutionaries'. For that, he was decorated by the Revolutionary government!
