The American Revolution was basically the “fire” that ignited the change the Third Estate wanted to see in their country. The French people’s knowledge of their rights led them to believe that it is possible to achieve fairness and be respected in their own province. And lastly, the idea of questioning France’s government had peasants discover that their king barely even cared about their well-being and restricted them of representation.
The effect of this tax could be seen as a positive or a negative. When it comes to the research the tax has affected the country in a negative way, simply because the war was fought because of taxes that were seen as not needed as well the fact that the country fought the British to oppose taxes, and then Washington turns around and imposes a tax on the people after what they sacrificed to fight for the right to be free of taxes and to be supportive of their new government was tough because people did not have money to pay taxes at
A goal of the French Revolution was that the third estate became eager to have an actual leader that would pay attention to their needs so they because the National Assembly and agreed on the tennis court oath. They also wanted to create a new government but king Louis XVI wouldn’t sign it off so the National Assembly got mad and they overthrew the bastille. The bastille was a jail where all the prisoners were being kept. The third estate created the Declaration of the rights of man and of the citizen to express these goals. The goal of the American Revolution was to get away from the British government and be free.
After the French gained their rights, people in Haiti started to fight because they wanted to have the same rights that French gained during the reform. Locke’s ideas have given Frenchmen the courage to fight against the strict government. During the reign of Louis XIV, nobles’ power was strictly limited. By making the nobles live in Versailles, Louis could easily watch over his nobles. Later, Louis XVI took over the throne.
During the revolution, French citizens restored, then ultimately rebuilt their country 's "political landscape" by eradicating absolute monarchy and the feudal system (history.com). This revolution played a large role in shaping modern nations like Haiti by showing people the power that citizens really have over their countries and governments (history.com). Though the French Revolution was not able to "achieve all of its goals and at times degenerated into a chaotic bloodbath", it was successful in influencing revolutions around the world (history.com). The Haitian Revolution was not only influenced by the French Revolution as a whole, but also certain aspects of the revolution such as the ideals of the French Revolution, the change in government that occurred after the French Revolution had ended, and the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen that came about as a result of the France
British policies established in 1763-1776 greatly affected the colonists and pushed them towards developing their own republican values. All of the acts and taxes the British issued and how overly controlling the British were over the colonists was the starting point, also the increasing rebellions encouraged the colonists to break away from Britain’s rule, and finally the wars that resulted and seizing authority from the British was the final turning point for the colonists in eliminating Britain’s heavy-handed ruling over the colonists. The acts, and taxes that came with most of the acts, that the English imposed on the colonists was a substantial reason the colonists opposed British rule. After the French and Indian war the British found
The American Revolution brought about triumph of the United States, but the success of the country wasn't always so sure and the need for liberty didn’t seem easily as attainable as the people at the time thought it would be. The only thing that was standing in the way of the colonist was the most powerful army in the world; but the feeling to be free, to be independent, and to be its own powerful country was what fueled these men. In 1775 battles between colonists and representatives of the British power intensified and in order to calm things down of what the King thought was a meaningless rebellion, he sent Red Coats from the British Army. In spite of their efforts, days and months went. The Red Coats and the King saw the colonists strength, their courage and their determination.
David saw himself, as Dorothy Johnson pointed out in her book, Jacques Louis David: Art of Metamorphosis, “as a pictorial historian responsible to posterity for representing the Revolution (72).” By becoming a pseudo minister of propaganda, David was able to manipulate truth in order to represent Marat as virtuous, while defaming Corday as a deceitful anti-republican who disregarded society’s standards. The blurred gender role of Corday instilled fear within republican men—and the brainwashed women—to eventually disallow women to participate within the New Republic other than as submissive mothers/wives. This is turn creates what I believe to be a hypocrisy within the ideologies (liberty, equality, and fraternity) which the French Revolution fought to achieve. By excluding Corday from Marat, David foreshowed condemnation and fear towards intellectual independent women. Although she did assassinate a public figure, the punishment to all women clubs were overzealous and truly unjustified, as well as David’s blatant erasure of Corday from the
The inequity among the class structure that was implemented into the foundation of the ancient regime of France, is what prompted the severe formidable revolution in opposition to the government 's readiness to misemploy their sovereignty as well as their social position for the sole purpose of personal beneficial gain. The enlightenment was an intellectual movement emphasizing reasoning and understanding. It was a period of cognitive revolution, distinguished by extensive advances in science, philosophy, society and politics. These contemporary concepts heavily influenced philosophers such as John Locke, Voltaire, and Montesquieu, all masters of their craft. Although, the french revolution may have been influenced by the fundamentals of the
“Although theoretically it was a republic, in fact Napoleon held absolute power” (Spielvogel). This shows that France traded in a absolute ruler for another absolute ruler. While France technically got rid of their absolute government gaining it back would not count as them achieving their goal. For example. If someone has a dirty shirt and they wash it yet it gets dirty again, is the shirt still dirty?
since the revolution had many enemies and few friends peasants were forced to fight and this displeased them. before the revolution the catholic church had a lot of say in the government and a lot of power afterwards some of their power was revoked making it possible to have other religions in france which pissed off the catholic church. with the revolution brought equal rights to every one if that were lost there would be no point in the committee of public safety and it would just be disbanded. to protect the revolution would definitely come before protecting the people. robespierre was basically a dictator after an amount of time and was not thoroughly protecting the people 's rights so he got his head cut off the committee of public safety’s main goal was to protect the revolution even if effected both sides
The most prominent difference between France and New France 's politics was that New France 's administration was put into office based on merit and influence meanwhile French officials would buy their way into administrative positions . Both ways were easily corruptible but New France 's administrative policies appeared to give a slightly better chance for those of the middle class to get in to politics. The inevitable corruption through this system in New France did happen and led to many people using their position to further their wealth at the expense of the colony as seen by Francois Bigot who together with twenty two other officials carved their way to millionaires through corrupt politics . One of the most ground breaking differences from France was the fact that women were allowed to hold land and even trade assets in New France . In some cases women were even given a percentage of her husband 's assets when he died even if he had sons .
Opposed to the Federalists who wanted strong central government to promote commerce and manufacturing, including a national bank. They tended to be suspicious of democracy. They also Support England in its wars with France. Their support came especially from urban areas, business, and upper classes. They were also strongest in New England and coastal towns.
Many of those who abjured [gave up] their Protestant religion repented of their weakness.”(Doc 3) This demonstrates that the removal of the Edict of Nantes drove people insane because it granted the people France substantial rights, however when the rights were removed by Louis XIV people became infuriated, which is another reason to why the French Revolution occurred. Fundamentally, the actions that Louis XIV took had a great impact towards his people. His actions ultimately led the people of France initiate the French Revolution, which left France and its people in a vulnerable
(Voltaire 11). If all the people in France had a lot of power, then the structure would be bad. Although other philosophers did not want an absolutist government and wanted the current one removed, these ideas from Voltaire helped accomplish a government with with structure and equality. (Voltaire 13). One that would
