Les Amis de l'ABC (French for: The Friends of the ABC; pronounced: ah-bae-sae) is an association of revolutionary French republican students and Federalists who are anti-King Louis-Philippe. The society is beloved by the street child Gavroche who also symbolizes their revolutionary fervour.
Except for Marius, all members of the society, as well as Gavroche, are shot dead during the rebellion. Enjolras and Grantaire are not killed while defending the barricades; both are discovered at a later time by the National Guardsmen in the wine shop, and summarily executed. Marius Pontmercy, though wounded at the barricades, is carried off from the streets of Paris
