15 Real-photo postcards from the honor ceremony held for Alfred Dreyfus in the courtyard of the ECOLE MILITAIRE after his total acquittal in 1906.
Among the postcards: Soldiers of the French Order of Honor await Dreyfus upon arriving at the ceremony, Dreyfus talks to generals after his ranks have been restored, the Order of Honor from various angles, General Jean satisfied after awarding the Legion of Honor Cross to Dreyfus, The Order of Honor from different photo angles (among them a rare color postcard "The return of Dreyfus"), associates and generals celebrate, and more.
On July 12, 1906, the Court of Appeals overturned the verdict of the Rennes Court. A day later, the National Assembly decides by majority vote to restore to Dreyfus and Picard the ranks of officers who have been deprived of them, and to raise Dreyfus to the rank of major and to award him the Legion of Honor. On July 21, the ECOLE MILITAIRE held an honorary ceremony in the presence of the military, its family, and its close friends, as the weighty response to the ceremony of humiliation that took place exactly 11 years earlier in which its ranks were removed after being accused of betrayal in the homeland.
General condition very good.
