American Revolution vs. Russian Revolution
Transcript of American Revolution vs. Russian Revolution
The Russian Revolution Dedication Thesis Statement Subtopic 2
How They Both Changed The World American Revolution- The AR was proof that ideals such as freedom, justice, and equality could be used to build a country. Other revolutions have been inspired by this. Both the Russian and American revolutions had the goal of eliminating monarchy, but only the American Revolution guaranteed respect for the freedoms and human rights that were necessary to make the form of government that followed last. I chose to dedicate this to revolutionaries everywhere who won't settle for an unjust government. Elmwood Franklin School

How Each Revolution Played Out Topic Introduction Conclusion Wordle The American Revolution was mainly influenced by French philosophers and the Enlightenment period thinkers. The Russian Revolution was mainly influenced by Karl Marx, a German economic philosopher. The background for Russia's revolution was starvation.
The background for America's revolution was a sense of injustice taking place. American Revolution- This was sparked by the Boston Massacre. King George continued to tax the colonists, and refused to compromise with their demands. Russian Revolution- This was sparked by "Bloody Sunday", an event similar to the Boston Massacre. The Czar started to give in to the peoples’ demands, but did so too little and too late. Russian Revolution- It inspired many countries to become communist, some of which still are today. American Revolution- We used guerrilla style warfare, and won by allying with the French. Russian Revolution- This was a very long war, that eventually turned into a civil war. America has expanded upon its initial freedoms and rights that it won in the American Revolution. With the expansion of freedoms to include all citizens, the enlightenment inspired democracy has become stronger over time. Russia's revolution never guaranteed freedoms or personal rights, so when the people demanded them and would not back down, the system collapsed. http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=czar+nicholas&FORM=HDRSC2 http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=king+george+the+third&view=detail&id=E940B22D093C0CC4CB0A41548ACC90332ED30525 http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=the+arab+spring&qs=n&form=QBIR&pq=the+arab+spring&sc=8-10&sp=-1&sk= http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=communist+symbol&qs=IM&form=QBIR&pq=communist+&sc=8-10&sp=2&sk=IM1 http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=karl+marx&qs=IM&form=QBIR&pq=karl+mar&sc=8-8&sp=1&sk= http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=baron+de+montesquieu&qs=IM&form=QBIR&pq=baron+de+m&sc=8-10&sp=1&sk= http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=russian+revolution+bloody&qs=n&form=QBIR&pq=russian+revolution+bloody&sc=2-25&sp=-1&sk= http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=american+revolution+guerrilla+tactics&qs=SC&sk=&FORM=QBIR&pq=american%20revolution%20guerilla%20ta&sc=1-31&sp=1&qs=SC&sk= http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=american+revolution+guerrilla+tactics&qs=SC&sk=&FORM=QBIR&pq=american%20revolution%20guerilla%20ta&sc=1-31&sp=1&qs=SC&sk= Video Works Cited
