Transcript of French Revolution Scrapbook

1. 1st estate the higher clergy held most of the power and wealth. The lower clergy did all the church work and were paid very little. Taxes were very high. 2. 2nd estate the nobles had too much power and privileges. Dear king
The 3rd estate wanted to represent the French and not all three estates. They declared themselves to be the national assembly. The two other estates would follow along.
3. 3rd estate the peasants were forced to pay rent and taxes for the land they worked. They were also forced to pay one tenth of their income to the church. Today the people of Paris took action against King Louis the 14. They feared he would drive the National assembly by force. The people of Paris captured the Bastille prison; they looted and destroyed the prison. We talked to an eyewitness who confirmed that “the taking of the Bastille was a very violent and deadly day.”
The outbreak led to the formation of a new government in Paris.

The storming of the Bastille July 14, 1789 The French Revolution Dear dairy
Today on 1793 I was sentenced to the guillotine for plotting against the security of the nation of France. They did a lot of look around and they found out they was a lot of people plotting against the security of the nation of France. We all knew they would find us, so we did try to get the people that were not that involved to act like it didn’t happen. That the revolution will be a success and that the people that are dying of this thing will get a happy ending. My hope is that we can be free from the site of the fear of being killed, and that we can live in peace. The sound of the bird sing is sadly the last thing I am going to hear, so I hope that someone find this letter.
