In Which the Author wishes everyone a happy Bastille Day!

hmm? Oh, that's it. Happy Bastille Day.

This is an image, drawn by Victor Hugo from the frontspiece of a collection of Hugo's work, of General Valmy. The girl is Marianne, symbol of France (like Uncle Sam in the US).

Please note that her image is also the figurehead of the Éponine. Because yeah duh.
