The French Revolutionary Era.

In September, 1793, the convention decreed that the common era should be abolished in all civil affairs, and that the new French era should begin on September 22, 1792, the day of the true autumnal equinox, and that each succeeding year should begin at the midnight of the day on which the true autumnal equinox falls. The year was divided into twelve months of thirty days each. In ordinary years there were five extra days, from the 17th to the 21st of our September, and at the end of every fourth year was a sixth complimentary day. This reckoning was first used on November 22, 1793, and was continued until December 31, 1805, when it was discontinued, and the Gregorian calendar, used throughout the rest of Europe, was resumed. The following were the dates for the year 1804, the last complete year of this style of reckoning: Venderniaire (Vintage), September 23 to October 22.

Germinal (Budding), March 22 to April 21. Brumaire (Foggy), October 23 to November 22.

Floreal (Flowery), April 21 to May 20. Frimaire (Sleety), November 22 to December 21.

Prairial (Pasture), May 21 to June 20. Nivose (Snowy), December 22 to January 21,

Messidor Harvest), June 20 to July 19. Pluviose (Rainy), January 21 to February 20.

Thermidor (Hot), July 20 to August 19. Ventose (Windy), February 20 to March 19.

Fructidor (Fruit), August 19 to September 18. The months were divided into three decades of ten days each, but to make up the 365 five were added at the end of September: Primidi, dedicated to Virtue; Duodi, to Genius Tridi, to Labor : Quartidi, to Opinion, and Quintidi, to Rewards. To Leap Year, called Olympic, a sixth day, September 22 or 23, Sextidi, “the day of the Revolution," was added.

To each tenth diy, thirty-six in all, were assigned thirty-six"Fetes Decadaires," decreed by the National Convention on the eighteenth Prairial, in honor of the Supreme Being and Nature, the Human Race, the French People, Benefactors of Humanity, Martyrs for Liberty, Liberty and Equality, the Republic, Liberty of the World, Love of Country, Hatred of Tyrants and Traitors, Truth, Justice, Modesty, Glory and Immortality, Friendship, Frugality, Courage, Good Faith, Heroism, Disinterestedness, Stoicism, Love, Conjugal Fidelity, Paternal Love, Maternal Tenderness, Filial l'iety, Infancy, Childhood, Manhood, Old Age, Sickness, Agriculture, Industry, Our Ancestors, Our Posterity, Goodness.
