ACU Charlotte Corday

A young woman best known for assassinating the radical journalist Jean-Paul Marat in 1793. Corday knew that Marat was leading Jacobin with a hand in the "Reign of Terror" and felt his continued provocations would descend France into civil war. She entered his home under the guise of providing a list of Girondists that were planning an uprising in Caen. Upon receiving an audience with Marat she stabbed him in the chest as he soaked in a medicinal bath. Corday was executed for the murder 4 days later.
