Ending of the war

After the peasants took control of Freiburg in Breisgau, Hans Muller took some of the group to assist in the siege at Radolfzell. The rest of the peasants returned to their farms. On 4 June, by Wurzburg, Muller and his small group of peasant-soldiers joined with the Franconian farmers of the Hellen Lichten Haufen. Despite this union, the strength of their force was relatively small.
