About the object

Before the French Revolution, over 90 percent of the French population were from the peasant social class. The peasants handed over a tenth of their harvest to the church; they also had to pay salt tax to the king and taxes to the landlords. The nobles, however, paid nothing. This injustice so enraged the people, they decided to fight back.
