This medal is a bit of a mystery. I assumed the Paris Revolution of 1848, supported by the mysterious group know as the Rosy Cross (Red Cross, or later Rosicrucians) was being commemorated in this medal. Doing a little more research, and knowing Lyon and other cities in France were also involved, I learned that "Croix - Rousse" was an area of Lyon, France that had an 1848 revolution of their own. The district was an industrial area that had huge silk looms that saw popular unrest known as the Artisan's Revolution between 1848 and 1851. Therefore, I cannot say for sure if the medal refers to this aspect of the 1848 Revolutions or is honoring travelers from Lyon that went to Paris to participate in the revolution there. Help is requested from specialists and French historians who can properly interpret this historic medal.
