Transcript of The Revolution Continues...

The crowd demanded weapons and gunpowder that they believed was stored in the Bastille.

Rumors spread that the royal troops were going to occupy Paris.
More than 800 Parisians assembled outside the Bastille, a grim medieval prison for political prisoners.

The Storming of the Bastille
Storming of the Bastille
The guards shot at the crowd, but the crowd eventually gained entrance to the prison. Many were killed.
The Storming of the Bastille
The Bastille represented years of abuse by the monarchy. The “storming” of it was a wake up call to Louis XVI.

Storming of the Bastille
Shortly after the fall of the Bastille, rumors that villages were being attacked and crops being seized by government troops filled the countryside.

The Great Fear
As a result, many peasants panicked and started attacking the owners of the manors and burning down their luxurious houses; the Revolution had begun.

The Great Fear
The Revolution Continues...
After the Great Fear, factions, or dissenting groups of people, started to form in Paris.

Among these groups was the Paris Commune, which replaced the royalist government of the city. It could mobilize whole neighborhoods for protests or radical action to further the revolution.

The Paris Commune
Reluctantly, the 1st and 2nd Estates gave up their special privileges.

The National Assembly Acts
Modeled in part by the American Declaration of Independence, The Declaration of Rights of Man and of the Citizen included the following:

1. All male citizens were equal
before the law.

2. Freedom of religion.

3. Taxes levied according to one’s
ability to pay.

6,000 women marched on Paris demanding “BREAD” and also demanding that the King return to Paris.

King Louis XVI and his family moved from Versailles, where the royal palace was, to Tuileries, a palace in Paris.
