A colorful and stimulating presentation on the history of La Marseillaise.
It talks about Rouget de Lisle, the Austrain conflicts (1792), and how the Marseillaise got its name.
The presentation also shows you to Delacroix's painting in the Louvre -Liberté, and tells you which Beatles song was influenced by La Marseillaise. Perhaps you and your students can come up with ideas about why it was used.
Perfect to use for National Flag Day, or as a supplement to a French history lesson.
Vive la France!
