Paris overga seg til Preussen
Paris overga seg under den fransk-prøyssiske krig. Etter råd fra Bismarck igangsatte det tyske artilleriet rundt byen et omfattende bombardement, hvor rundt 12 000 granater ble skutt inn i byen gjennom 23 netter i den hensikt å bryte den franske kampmoralen gjennom strategisk bombing. Rundt 400 mennesker ble drept eller savnet, men bombardementet viste seg å ha liten effekt på kampmoralen. Da pariserne til slutt ble tvunget til å overgi seg var det fordi matforrådene var brukt opp.
Krigen ble utkjempet mellom Frankrike og Det nordtyske forbund under Preussens ledelse, sammen med de sør-tyske statene Baden, Bayern, og Württemberg, samt Storhertugdømmet Hessen mellom 19. juli 1870 og 10. mai 1871. Etter en serie franske nederlag i åpningsfasen av krigen ble nesten halvparten av den franske styrken omringet ved Metz, og den nyetablerte franske unnsetningsstyrken ble knust i et slag ved Sedan, hvor den franske keiser Napoleon 3. overga seg til tyskerne. Dette førte til opprettelsen av den tredje franske republikk.
Krigen endte med en overveldende tysk seier etter at tyske styrker hadde erobret Paris, og Tyskland ble i løpet av krigen samlet under Preussens ledelse.

With a muzzleloading or breech-loading shotgun loaded with black powder and shot a hunter is well-equipped for crow hunting. This article shows you how to hunt crows with your black powder shotguns with a modern approach.

For sale: a Beaumont Vitali rifleFor sale: A Dutch Beaumont rifle made by P. Stevens in Maastricht The Netherlands. It was made in 1874 as a single shot rifle and transformed to a magazine rifle in 1890 for the Dutch army. It doesn't have the small cracks in the wood around the magazine (a known weak spot). All Beaumont Vitali's lack the cleaning rod unfortunately. It has good rifling and good working mechanism. The magazine and rear sight still have the "dirty" type blueing.
I have lots of pictures, so ask for more.
Sales price is 530 euros incl. shipping to Norway with DPD.
receiver number Y106
