Transcript of General Layfette

French Revolution
General Lafayette
Born September 6, 1757 Died May 20, 1834
Historically in France, moderates were a middle-of-the-road political faction or group during the French Revolution. they didn't agree but didn't disagree with the revolution. Moderates were those who opposed the Reign of Terror and while they often varied in their ultimate goals, many were interested in a Parliamentary monarchy such as the English had achieved
Radicalism increased due to the unfair treatment of the Third Estate, which made up 95% of the population. They were forced to pay taxes and were starving and in debt. So, the National Assembly formed to revolt against leaders like Marie Antoinette and King Louis XVI. This is how the Reign of Terror started, when hundreds of people were put the death every day.
They were the ones who were against the French Revolution
