100 YEARS AGO TODAY: The March to the Rhine - Day 3.

 

The march grinds to a halt as a serious accident on the railway delays supplies.  The men take this first setback in stride, spending their time cleaning harness and vehicles, Wednesday, 20th November 1918.

 

Spartacist Revolution Funerals, 20 November 1918.  A funeral procession arrives in eastern Berlin at the Graveyard of the Fallen of March (Friedhof der Marzgefallenen), where the victims of The Spartacist Revolution, 9 November 1918, are buried alongside those of 1848 (a provocative attempt to use the memory of the Deutsche Revolution 1848/1849 to shape the meaning of the revolution in 1918).  The procession passes through Brandenburg Gate, the Neue Wache (a Prussian Memorial in memory of the Napoleonic Wars) and Schlossplatz, where three volleys are fired in a public salute. Karl Liebknecht addresses those in attendance - he will be assassinated 15 January 1919.
