The article presents changes to some terms used during war. In March 2003, Capitol Hill eateries renamed French fries "freedom fries" on their menus to ridicule French opposition to the Iraq War. Anti-German sentiment during World War I also prompted U.S. and British dog breeders to rename German shepherds "Alsatians," a term that dropped from use in 1977. During the 1793 to 1794 Reign of Terror, the Committee of Public Safety in France banned all references to royalty.
