General Charette

Impetuous, leader of men and great seducer, these are the qualities that posterity will have left to General Charette.

Stopped in the woods of Chabotterie

Chased like a wild beast in the woods of Chabotterie, wounded in the head and weakened, he was caught in a thicket. This capture marks the end of the Vendée War. It causes more joy to the Republicans than the winning of a battle would have done.

Last moments of bravery

Charette is taken to Nantes, shown to the people, then brought to Place Viarme for his execution. He leads the peloton himself and refuses to be blindfolded. He launches to the soldiers: "When I close my eyes, shoot straight to the heart!" »
When the latter opened fire, in a final combatant reflex, he rushed forward.

The tribute of Napoleon I

“Yes, Charette leaves me with the impression of a great character, I see him doing things with an energy, an uncommon audacity, he reveals genius. »
