Transcript of AP: Revolutions Part Two

AP: Revolutions Part Two
-During Revolution, like every other European country declares war on France

-France institutes draft and raises 800,000 men to "defend the ideas of the Revolution"

-A young Corsican, Napoleon Bonaparte, rises through the ranks until he's commander of all French armies. (He could never have risen to this level before Revolution- why?)
Napoleonic Wars
-From late 1700s to 1815, Napoleon takes on all of Europe

-One by one, European states fall or ally with him. Only Russia and Britain stand against by 1812.

-Napoleon invades Russia and his army starves. He is exiled to Elba, then comes back, is defeated by Brits at Waterloo, then finally exiled to St. Helena where he dies.
Napoleon's Reforms
-Brought order back to France while keeping some elements of Revolution

-Kept civil (legal) equality, secular law, brought back Catholic Church.

-In broader empire, he ended feudal system, proclaimed equality, and insisted on religious toleration.

-Even outside France, this will plant the seed for later democratic movements.
-French revolution spreads ideas to its Caribbean colony, Haiti.

-In 1791, a ten year revolt, led by Toussaint Louverture, is led by black slaves against whites. Whites are either killed or flee, creating an island run by slaves. Plantations destroyed.

-Napoleon attempts to take it back but fails (causing him to give up on overseas empire)

-Revolution destroys Haitian economy


-Europeans grow even stricter on their colonies for fear of new revolts
Spanish Colonies
-Napoleonic Wars, in which Spain was conquered by France, weaken Spain's hold on colonies

-Increasing resentment among educated creoles, who were exposed to Revolutionary ideas, against Peninsulares

-Led by Simon Bolivar, colonies overthrew Spanish overlords and declared independence.
-Natives and slaves benefit little- still controlled by white Creoles

-No "unification" like in United States- freed colonies are isolated from each other

-Remaining casta system makes L.A. countries susceptible to dictatorships and "strong men", unlike the egalitarian United States
"Latin America is ungovernable. Those who serve the revolution plow the sea. I have plowed the sea. Our America will fall into the hands of vulgar tyrants.

-Simon Bolivar, 1830
Dom Pedro
