Excerpt: The Veronese Easters (Italian - Pasque Veronesi) were a rebellion during the Italian campaign of 1797, in which inhabitants of Verona and the surrounding areas revolted against the French occupying forces under Antoine Balland, whilst Napoleon Bonaparte (the French supreme commander in the Italian campaign) was fighting in Austria.
