Halevy, L. (n.d.). The Insurgent. Retrieved from

Excerpt: ?PRISONER,? said the president of the military tribunal, ?have you anything to add in your own defense?? ?Yes, Colonel,? answered the prisoner. ?You assigned me a little lawyer who has defended me in his fashion. I want to defend myself in my own. ?My name is Martin, Louis Joseph. I'm fifty?five. My father was a locksmith. He had a little shop up in the St. Martin quarter, and he had only a little business. We were able to live. I learned to read in the National, which was, I believe, Monsieur Thiers?s newspaper. ?The 27th of July, 1830, my father went out early in the morning. That evening, at ten o?clock, they brought him back to us, dying on a litter; he had received a bullet in the chest. By his side, on the litter, was his gun.
