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.
(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,
An Interesting Union of Kingdoms In Shakespeare’s play Henry V, the union of England and France were beneficial to both countries. King Henry V desired to obtain rule of France, especially since he believed to be a rightful heir. King Charles of France would not content easily with Henry, but eventually he realized the union was for the best. The two great kingdoms were united not only by Henry’s rule, but also by the marriage of Henry and Princess Kathrine of France. King Henry believed he was entitled to the throne of not only England but also France.
Post Thirty Years war left France looking for a new leadership style that would give plenty of stability. What France received was Louis XIV, who would reign under the new absolute monarchy government. During Louis’ reign, divine rights controlled rank in society. This left many confused on why they were picked to be at the bottom of society, and why the king was given his power. Jean Domat, a royally appointed juror by king Louis helped explain a better understanding of the new system of governance to the people of France in his writings.
Later, Louis XVI took over the throne. He raised taxes then spent the money in whatever way he pleased (Doc 5). He also imprisoned anyone he wanted without doing trials and controlled people’s right to speak. None of these restrictions were close to Locke’s meaning of a government. Locke defended that a government should protect the rights of the people because every man have rights to life, liberty, and property.
He lived a privileged life and was called a hedonist because he does not care about his studies. John F.

Aun: In paragraph 2, Thomas Paine tries to explain to the colonists that they have been tricked and that they had made big sacrifices only to be tricked. He says the colonists say that they have the protection of Britain, when Britain’s main motive was interest in the new land, not to attach to it. Britain did not fight for us but fought for itself with people we were at peace with. Britain gave us new enemies. Thomas explains how they should be independant and let Britain fight its own battles with France and
Adam Choquette Period 7 Mr. Coulter Honors English II March 3, 2016 Breaking Man’s Chains In the last chapter of Anthem, Equality reflects, “The best in me had been my sins and my transgressions”(98). He no longer holds the belief that society is simply ‘misguided’ or that they are ‘forgiving’. Instead, Prometheus embraces individuality, rejecting the concept that, “We are all in all and all in one” held by his former society (19). “I am done with this creed of corruption,” Equality declares, no longer willing to slave for his brothers (97). It is this declaration of independence which breaks Equality’s chains allowing him to rejoice in his ‘sins’.
Clearly stated in the beginning of the document is L 'Ouverture 's view on slavery: “There can be no slaves on this territory; servitude has been forever abolished. All men are born, live and die there free and French.” Not only does the native born Haitian undermine his position by referring to him and his people as French--he unintentionally puts the power into the hands of the colonialists by taking this position. L’Ouverture’s deep belief in the ideals of the French Revolution limited the extent to which he was willing to push for total independence. The universal ideals of La Republique were not, in fact, so universal. It could also be that failing to push for total independence was a strategic decision rooted in an assessment of the relative strength of the Haitian political position.
The fall of the French prison signified the end of Louis XVI’s authority and became a symbol of triumph over despotism. The cowardly nobility began emigrating, while the Assembly endorsed peasant revolution by abolishing feudalism. The “Great Fear” came about in August when nobles hired brigands to destroy peasant harvest and hopes of reform (Jones 182). The job of the nobility was to organize and lead the defense of their country and their king (Durant 251). I do not believe damaging crops fit in the category of defense.
