"Napoleon's claim to fame was using cannons on the streets of Paris. Outnumbered 6 to 1, he crushed Royalist forces marching on the National Convention."
Bishop on Napoleon's victory, 2014.[src]

The 13 Vendémiaire uprising was a French royalist rebellion in Paris on 5 October 1795.

Napoleon Bonaparte, a young artillery officer of the French Army, defeated twenty-five thousand royalists with only five thousand troops under his command, using forty cannons. However, one of the royalists, François-Joseph Carbon, managed to survive, and attempted to assassinate Bonaparte.[1]
