Les Sans Culotte of the French Revolution.


File:HenriIV.jpg. of France


In the French Revolution, the sans-culottes "(without culottes)," were radical left-wing partisans of the lower classes; typically urban laborers, which dominated France. Though ill-clad and ill-equipped, they made up the bulk of the Revolutionary army during the early years of the French Revolution. The appellation refers to the fashionable culottes (silk knee-breeches) of the moderate bourgeois revolutionaries, as distinguished from the working class who traditionally wore trousers.
