Charge épique des patriotes combattant lors des rébellions de 1837-1838. Poussés par un idéal républicain, ils s’en allèrent au combat malgré leur force moindre.

Sur le dos d’un destrier, la mère de toutes les batailles mène les patriotes vers le combat, leur insufflant le courage nécessaire pour le combat. Son arme est l’épée de justice.

On peut apercevoir les couleurs des patriotes sur le drapeau brandit par l’un d’eux et sur la cocarde à la tunique de la Justice.

Au Québec, le premier lundi précédent le 25 mai est un jour dédié à la mémoire de ses insoumis.

An illustration done for the Patriots' Day in Quebec. The patriots were rebels who fought against an oppressive and irresponsible English government in Lower-Canada. The rebellion lasted two years : 1837-1838.

These courageous warriors were no soldiers, only normal citizen fighting for the liberty of their nation, Quebec (wich was named, at the time, ''Lower-Canada'').

Évidemment Delacroix fut une inspiration ! Delacroix was of course a great inspiration for this painting !

I really like how you kept the faces of the soldiers in the back ranks more prominent than the contour of their bodies. You are using a lot of lighting and mood to really create drama in this image and it looks great.
