Georges-Jacques Danton, rose in the Assembly on September 2nd 1792, and gave a speech of boldness to help conquer the foreign war with Austria but it instead inspired the destruction of the enemies of the revolution and thousands of people died on the accusation of being against the revolution.
The Committee of Public Safety, led by Maximilien Robespierre took control over and started the executions on "The Law of Suspect".
Both the Jacobins and Girondins both agreed that the Reign of Terror must stop. The two competing political clubs, were rivaling for control and the Jacobins were most popular as they fought for the execution of the King and won, they were primarily in control; but a woman named Charlotte Corday snuck into his bath and stabbed him; he was the first martyr.
George Jacques Danton, leader of the Girondins, then insisted the Reign of Terror stop, and he was the next person to be executed. The Jacobins then had enough and had Maximilien arrested and executed.
