Casimir Peret, Mayor of Béziers during the mid 19th Century - Scuptural Reief by Jean-Antoine Injalbert

The last French Revolution took place in Béziers on the third of December 1851 the army fired upon the Republican Demonstrators, who, encouraged by the Mayor, Casimir Peret, were against the coup d'État by Napoleon III.

The supression of this movement resulted in certain persons being condemmed to death and others deported to French Guiana.
