August Jean-Marie Vermorel
A radical and socialist, he was attached to the staff of the Presse (1864) and the Liberte (1866). In the latter year he was appointed editor of the Courrier Franšais, and his attacks on the government in that organ led to his imprisonment. In 1869 he was editor of the Reforme, and was again imprisoned for denouncing the government.
On the overthrow of the Empire in 1870 he was released and took an active part in the Commune. He was dangerously wounded while fighting at the barricades, taken prisoner and removed to Versailles, where he died.
