Salvadoran Civil War & The French Revolution
Transcript of Salvadoran Civil War & The French Revolution
By Allison Taylor & Tyler Thrasher
Not long after the 1980 assassination of Archbishop Romero, peaceful protests turned violent as police opened fire on the crowds.
News footage of unarmed protestors being shot on the steps of the National Cathedral turned the eyes of the world to El Salvador, a tiny country in conflict.
The civil war raged on in El Salvador, fueled by U.S. aid to the Salvadoran military.
Salvadoran Civil War
With continuing reports of atrocities and murders in El Salvador, the U.S. Congress no longer accepted the State Department's assurance that things were getting better.
Moakley's report revealed the cruel injustice of the U.S.-backed Salvadoran government, setting in motion an international process to end the war.
Both sides of the conflict in El Salvador approached the United Nations for help in negotiating a settlement. The United Nations sponsored talks, which culminated in the January 1992 signing of the Peace Accords, ending 12 years of civil war.

French Revolution, also called Revolution of 1789, the revolutionary movement that shook France between 1787 and 1799 and reached its first climax there in 1789. Hence the conventional term “Revolution of 1789,” denoting the end of the ancient régime in France and serving also to distinguish that event from the later French revolutions of 1830 and 1848.
French Revolution ended with both their king and queen dead.
