  • Me too

  • Surrender!! Hand over the gun powder!
  • The Great Fear was a wave of senseless panic through France, where peasants became outlaws themselves. They thought nobles were hiring outlaws to terrorize them. So instead they went and destroyed noble's houses and documents, which bonded them to the nobles.
