They liked to paint war pictures back in the day, didn't they?

 
The fall of Dannebrog from the sky - it's just a myth, but still part of our history.

Probably not historical - but Leightons "The Accolade" has always been one of my favorites...

An image from the 1798 rebellion. Apparantly based on a real event during the battle for the Co. Wexford town of New Ross, when a rebel stuffed his wig into a British cannon only to shout to his comrades, 'its stopped lads, its stopped!' Seconds later he was blown into a thousand fragments. A testament to bravery, or stupidity, I'm not sure which.



This image was also a familiar one from any text dealing with the 1798 rebellion - gives a good example of the brutality of both sides during the revolution. If Daniel O'Connell - the liberator - hadn't witnessed these instances of utterly gruesome carnage I'm pretty sure he would have led a national revolution in the 1840s rather than vainly attempt to repeal the act of union through democratic means. Though not quite a pacifist (He killed a guy in a duel years later) he always refused to endorse or recommend the use of violence as part of a political strategy, despite coming under enormous pressure from more radical members of his entourage:

I've always been amused by this one. There's somethng so French (Peter Sellers French) about the Soirit of Liberty leading the revolution topless. Or maybe Delacroix just had an eye to the market.

I'm wondering why one of the guys in the above picture kicked the bucket with nothing on below the waist.

Now you mention it, so am I. Mind you the French always had  a bad reputation [1] for plumbing.

[1] Thoroughly undeserved nowadays except possibly in some very old-fashioned village.
