|Yes, although there were many rebellions, "war" feels less misleading to me, especially in the context given to me. Thank you.|

Wars of the Vendee
VENDEE, WARS OF THE, a counter-revolutionary insurrection which took place during the French Revolution (q.v.), not only in Vendee proper but also in Lower Poitou, Anjou, Lower Maine and Brittany. The district was mainly inhabited by peasants; it contained few important towns, and the bourgeois were but a feeble minority. The ideas of the Revolution were slow in penetrating to this ignorant peasant population, which had always been less civilized than the majority of Frenchmen, and in 1789 the events which roused enthusiasm throughout the rest of France left the Vendeans indifferent. Presently, too, signs of discontent appeared. The priests who had refused to submit to the Civil Constitution of the Clergy perambulated these retired districts, and stigmatized the revolutionists as heretics. In 1791 two " representatives on mission " informed the Convention of the disquieting condition of Vendee, and this news was quickly followed by the exposure of a royalist plot organized byfhe marquis de la Rouerie.
