"La Marseillaise"
Come, children of the Fatherland Our day of glory has come! Against us the bloody flag of tyranny is raised! The bloody flag is raised. Can you hear in the country the shrieks of those ferocious soldiers? They come to our very anns to slaughter our sons and our wives: To arms, citizens! Fonn your battalions! March forth! March forth! Let their impure blood water our fields! #Themesong
Did anyone know that the French National Anthem was originally entitled Chant de guerre de l'armeé du Rhin, it was the war Song of the Army of the Rhin, the anthem became called La Marseillaise because of its popularity with volunteer army units from Marseilles, the Convention accepted it as the French national anthem in a decree passed July 14, 1795. #Armystrong
This song says a lot its really inspirational and it just makes me want to try harder to conqueror day-in and day-out.#Proudtobefrench
This song was written and composed in the year of 1792 by Claude Joseph Rouget de Lisle during the French Revolutionary Wars. #French-Artist
The song was originally titled "Chant de guerre pour l'Armée du Rhin". The French National Convention adopted it as the Republic's anthem in 1795. #Original-Name
It acquired its nickname after being sung in Paris by volunteers from Marseille marching on the capital. #Songs-Change-Everything
The Convention accepted it as the French national anthem in a decree passed on 14 July 1795, making it France's first anthem. #Passedthetest
It later lost this status under Napoleon I, and the song was banned outright by Louis XVIII and Charles X, only being re-instated briefly after the July Revolution of 1830. #Banned
During Napoleon I's reign, "Veillons au Salut de l'Empire" was the unofficial anthem of the regime, and in Napoleon III's reign, it was "Partant pour la Syrie". #Not_Official
During the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, "La Marseillaise" was recognized as the anthem of the international revolutionary movement. #Recognized-For-Being-Amazing
As such, it was adopted by the Paris Commune in 1871. Eight years later, in 1879, it was restored as France's national anthem, and has remained so ever since. #Forever

The representatives of the French people, organized as a National Assembly, believing that the ignorance, neglect, or contempt of the rights of man are the sole cause of public calamities and of the corruption of governments. #giveusourrights
They have resolved to set forth in a solemn declaration the natural, inalienable and sacred the rights of man. #about-time
So that by being constantly present to all the members of the social body, this declaration may always remind them of their rights and duties.#alwaysaround
Also that by being liable at every moment to comparison with the aim of any and
all political institutions the acts of the legislative and executive powers may be
the more fully respected. #RESPECT
Then that by being founded henceforward on simple and incontestable principles the demands of the citizens may always tend toward maintaining the constitution and the general welfare. #law
The Declaration proclaims that all citizens are to be guaranteed the rights of liberty, property, security, and resistance to oppression. #Love-Your-Rights
It argues that the need for law derives from the fact that the exercise of the natural rights of each man has only those borders which assure other members of the society the enjoyment of these same rights. #That's_Fair_Enough
Thus, the Declaration sees law as an expression of the general will intended to promote this equality of rights and to forbid “only actions harmful to the society."

Declaration of The Rights of Man and of The Citizen
Reign of Terror
Has anyone ever heard of this thing called the reign of terror its been going on since Sept. 5, 1793 to July 27, 1794. #Crazy
They are executing people left and right people like nobles, priest, and hoarders anyone who looked suspicious. #feelingsafe
The Terror also had an economic side a price-control measure demanded by the lower classes of Paris and a religious side that was in the program of dechristianization pursued by the followers of Jacques Hébert. #politicsmakepeoplecrazy
The “Great Terror” is another name for it, that followed, in about 1,400 people executed, contributed to the fall of Robespierre on July 27. #Youwillbemissed
During the Reign of Terror, at least 300,000 suspects were arrested; 17,000 were officially executed, and a lot died in prison or without trial. #lotsofpeoplelockedup
Watching people getting their heads cut off, I can say for a fact it is not a pleasant sight. #execution
It's also known as The Terror, it was a period of violence that occurred after the onset of the French Revolution, it was incited by conflict between rival political factions, the Girondins and the Jacobins. #Gang-Wars

French Revolution
Napoleon Bonaparte
By the summer of 1789, France was moving quickly toward revolution there were severe food shortages in France that year, and popular resentment against the rule of King Louis XVI was turning to fury. #Furious
June the Third Estate, which represented commoners and the lower clergy declared itself the National Assembly and called for the drafting of a constitution. #can_they_do_that
Initially seeming to yield, Louis legalized the National Assembly but then surrounded Paris with troops and dismissed Jacques Necker. #Guards
Also a popular minister of state who had supported reforms in response, mobs began rioting in Paris at the instigation of revolutionary leaders. #revolution
It's morning of July 15, the outcome appeared clear the King thought the same thing, and he and his military commanders backed down.#Neverbackdown
Then The Royal troops concentrated around Paris were dispersed to their frontier garrisons. #Watchout
This rioting has been so crazy that it makes me not want to come out of the house anymore. #safe_at_home
The Bastille was a prison which held political prisoners. It symbolized the king’s power as he could send the prisoners there with just a letter. #Authority
These prisoners were not tried at court, they simply went to the Bastille, now there were a lot of rumors surrounding the Bastille, making it seem like a torture camp. #Torture-is-cruel
The truth was, the prisoners in the Bastille were treated well there were no less than 40 prisoners at a time. #Truth_will_reveal_all
During the storming, there were really only 7 prisoners. It is a popular opinion that the Parisians stormed the Bastille as a sign of rebellion against the monarchy. #Rebel-against-the-government

The Tennis Court Oath happened on June 20 1789 the dramatic act of defiance by representatives of the non privileged classes of the French nation. #Everybodyup
During the meeting of the Estates-General, at the beginning the deputies of the Third Estate, realizing that in any attempt at reform they would be outvoted by the two privileged orders. #Whack
Also the clergy and the nobility, had formed, on June 17, a National Assembly. Finding themselves locked out of their usual meeting hall at Versailles on June 20. #bringyourkeys
Thinking that the king was forcing them to disband, they moved to a nearby indoor tennis court, they took an oath never to separate until a written constitution had been established for France. #we_are_one
In the face of the solidarity of the Third Estate, King Louis XVI relented and on June 27 ordered the clergy and the nobility to join with the Third Estate in the National Assembly. #they_be_making_plans
We all are one we stand together we stand tall we will not leave until we get what we want. #demands
