For a more critical look at Cavaignac's actions from June 23rd to June 26th, one can find documentation in Bakunin's Statism and Anarchy from pages 157 - 159. Cavaignac's actions are described as the inspiration to the later Prussian suppression of the National Assembly in Frankfurt and it supporters.
His son, Jacques Marie Eugène Godefroy Cavaignac was a prominent politician.
