Summary

Troops of soldiers from the Napoleonic era, the French Revolution, and World War I, marching through the Arc de Triomphe. 'La Marseillaise' is urging them on. 'La Marseillaise' became the French national symbol for mobilization, which was taken from François Rude's (1784-1855) bas relief he sculpted for the Arc de Triomphe (1833-l836). The relief shows the 'Genius of Liberty' urging the troops of 1792 into battle. Later, this same figure is referred to as 'La Marseillaise.'
