In Offenburg, on September 12, 1847, the "Friends of the Constitution" adopted the "13 Demands of the People of Baden," the first comprehensive catalogue of fundamental rights in German history, at the "Salmen" inn.

They demanded freedom of the press, personal liberty, fair taxes, education for all, a popular state administration and the "equalization of the disproportion between labor and capital", part of which also are basic human rights. This led to the very first National Assembly in Germany and was the foundation of the present German Constitution.

The large sculpture by the artist Jonathan Borofsky is named "Feedom-Male/Female", which also fits nicely.

Friedrich Hecker, one of the spokesmen for the "Friends of the Constitution," emigrated to the United States after the de facto failure of the German Revolution and became politically involved there, fighting against slavery and supporting Abraham Lincoln.
