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.
In Document A, there is a map showing the land Napoleon conquered for France, Napoleon and his military conquered a lot of land for France and it even explains in Document B that Napoleon conquered so much land because he wanted to eliminate the tyrants of other countries to better the lives of people under their rule. Napoleon cared about the happiness and well being of others. In Document E the Napoleonic Code explains “All Frenchmen shall enjoy civil rights.” During the Reign of Terror and the Revolution Frenchmen had no civil rights and had no protection from the government. Napoleon reintroduced civil rights to France after their rights had been taken away from them. Document C explains that Napoleon believed in better education for France and thought better education would help create a stronger military.
Thomas Jefferson’s opinion of how the national government should be run, changed quite a bit over the course of his presidency. He started it off as a strict constructionist as he opposed the excise laws and his opposition to the Alien and Sedition acts. At some point he began to transform into a loose constructionist when he bought the louisiana purchase and he improved our navy to help fight the Barbary war. Somewhere during his presidency his views changed and it was most likely before he bought the Louisiana territory. Before Jefferson entered the presidential office he was a states rights supporter and when the tax on whiskey was placed he opposed it, saying “The first error was to admit it by the Constitution.” (Doc A).
These changes will soon be repeated in countries like the German Coast Uprising of 1811 in the United States. Naturally, the bloodiness of the Haitian Revolution aroused fear among many. For example, Thomas Jefferson in Document 9 wanted to end contact and abolish trade in order to ensure peace and stop violence between different groups of people. Jefferson knew that contact with Haiti would cause slavery to be a debated question for the United States. With Haiti being another republic, the new country no longer imported slaves from the Trans-Atlantic slave trade, which ultimately shaped the economy particularly in the Western
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.
(Document 2) In 1789 Napoleon abolished feudalism and outlawed custom houses making high peasant taxes as well as all feudal restrictions no more. This gave peasant more property and ownage of things (Notes 3/2/17). All of these outlaws highlight Napoleon 's embodiment of the french revolution because It shows that he wanted equality and peace between the nobles and peasants just as the “Equality” part of France’s motto states “Liberty, Equality,
His skills and knowledge contributed to his leadership and organizational ability, two characteristics that had been missing in past revolts. Louverture was originally on Spain side because he wanted to have a part in the northern Saint-Domingue but changed camps when France decided to abolish slavery in 1794. He ultimately became the commander in chief of all republican forces in Saint-Domingue. Using his new role, Louverture tried to create an Independent state for Haiti by rebelling against the French.
The first thing Gustav did when the Danish were forced out was to impose taxes on the church. There were debts to Lubeck that needed to be paid and the Catholic church had the money to do it. This would later lead to the reformation in Sweden. Aside from having debts to pay off, Vasa didn't quite like the idea of a power that had just as much or more than what he had as king, though, he did sympathize with the need of church services. This led to the spread of Lutheranism throughout the country but Sweden didn't accept it as the national religion until 1544, because of the change to Lutheranism, there was a revolt from 1542 to 1543, started by Anti-Lutheran's.
The Commune was in control through the whole revolution. An important event at the beginning of the French Revolution was abolition of feudalism in August 1789 when the National Constituent Assembly adopted Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen. The document guaranteed and protected individual rights and represented foundation for all political movements and set standards for all later governments. But those standards were disregarded and crushed during the radical phase. The constitutional monarchy was established in September 1971 with adoption of the first written constitution.
“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?
