        Trial in Bourges of the the French Republican ringleaders of the Demonstration in Paris of 15 May 1848

        The trial ended in April, 1849 and of the 19 people originally named as accused, Armand Barbès and Albert (Alexandre Martin) were condemned to deportation. Louis-Auguste Blanqui, Joseph Sobrier, François-Vincent Raspail, Benjamin Flotte and Auguste-François Quentin received prison sentences. Degré, Larger, Borme, Thomas, Courtais (commander of the Garde Nationale) and Vilain were acquitted. The choice of the High Court in Bourges for the trial was made because it was sufficiently distant from Paris to remove any risk of popular demonstrations of support in Paris.
