Freemasons planting banners outside the Porte Maillot; Paris

A group of Freemasons planting their banners in front of the Porte Maillot, during the Paris Commune, April 1871. The Freemasons were one of many groups who tried to encourage Thiers, the leader of the Versailles Government, to negotiate with the Communards. At the end of April 1871 a group of Freemasons, wearing top hats and carrying their insignia and banners, mounted the ramparts to try to intercede in the fighting, to avoid a blood-bath in Paris. They were not successful. Date: 1871
