Catalan term or phrase: la dispersió general
This is a text on Catalan Moddernism. this "dispersió general" seems to me to be some historical event, possibly a call to soldiers to disband? I don't know enough about Spanish and Catalan history to know, but the dates of this person's life should be good clue.

Pere Cavallé, (Reus, 1880 – 1939).

Dramaturg i polític, és l’únic de la colla modernista que va romandre al lloc de naixença després de la dispersió general i durant tota la vida.
