Chapter 1: Nation. Revolution. Ribbit.

In Gypsy controlled 17almost90s France the land was ruled over by feudal toad lords, religious insidious nethertestifiers and the overindulged hedonistic aristocracy. The Toad Lords would demand obscene amounts of goods from those tithed to their amphibian domains. The Nethertestifiers would demand the people dance and sing in a language they did not understand. And the aristocracy would get the people's dogs drunk on wine made by the feet of an albino cave child who has never seen the light of the sun and then the aristocrat would sodomize said house pet. oh it was terrible.

People got pissed and kicked the Gypsies out of Bastille in July and in October forced the Royal Gypsy court back to Paris where it could be watched heavily by an old man on a stool. The Rights of Man were proclaimed and the unholy trinity that dominated the landscape so heavily for hundreds of years was eradicated in 3 days. a republic was formed shortly there after resulting in the slaughter of King Kermit Louis XVI.

But power corrupts as it always does and the radicals with in the movement resulted in a reign that is said to have killed 16 to 40 thousand people. The Directory showed up and put a fuckin stop to that shit with their legion of werewolf kings and vampire cobblers. Then the mist with in the woods grew still and all sound seemed to bleed out into deafening silence.

Napoleon floated out on his "back to the future 2" hoverboard and looked deeply into the soul of the camera and muttured..

"le non"

chapter 2 will cover the 2nd zombie apocalypse that occurred within france and how the neighboring nations intervened forming a geopolitical landscape that would have impacts over the next 200 years.

((chapter 1 had around 270 words))

Its a 10,000 word essay, and as a basic idea i wrote down some key terms, anyone wanna tell me if they see anything seriously wrong, i would seriously appreciate the help guys, this is a large grade for me, i am applying for a extension because i was very sick for the past week, and i just recently got back to school

Committee of public safety:

The committee of public safety was a committee formed during the reign of terror, it was first established in April of 1793, by the National convention. During the later years of the revolution the committees power and influence diminished and it was finally disbanded in 1795. The committee of public safety’s main job was to eliminate nobles and believers of the monarchy, they also eliminated a large number of people from the third estate merely because they disagreed with some of the Committees ideas. The Committee also destroyed and closed down churches, for fear they held too much power, they eliminated old social customs, and incorporated a early form of a socialist nation by controlling what was produced in the country. The committee of public safety played a very large role in the revolution, they put things into a slightly more orderly fashion, and brought down peoples anger by publicly executing people.

Declaration of the Rights of Man: The Declaration of the Rights of Man was a document that was written in August of 1789, The document abolished the old regime and monarchy, and stated that all men are born and shall remain free for all their lives. The Declaration of the Rights of Man is crucial to how the revolution progressed, because it eliminated the monarchy and old social classes people felt as if they could do as they pleased which inevitably added a new “spark” to the motivation of people that participated in the revolution. The creation and signing of the Declaration of the Rights of Man proved to be a major stepping stone in the revolution, it was the first step to France creating a later constitution, which influenced a lot of how the rest of our modern world is governed.

Louis XVI:

Louis XVI was the King of France from 1774 to 1791, his reign was during the French revolution and his term was cut short when he was beheaded with a guillotine in 1793. Louis XVI was known to be a very incompetent leader, He did very little to help the third estate, and was known to be extremely indecisive. Louis XVI himself was responsible for the beginning of the revolution by heavily taxing the third estate. Not only did Louis tax the third estate he also raised the prices for bread which caused the civilians to begin rioting. Louis demanded the high taxes due to the wars he fought in America. Louis XVI although being a impotent leader and very disliked by the majority of the population, did do one good thing which was that he made the working class realize how oppressed they were. This eventually led to the most major reform France ever experienced.

National Assembly:

The National Assembly was created during the Tennis court oath on 1789, it was disbanded when the Legislative assembly took over in 1793. The National Assembly held a great power during the French revolution because it gave the third estate the willpower to fight back against the monarchy. Not only that but they influenced the the storming of the Bastille and more importantly they were the first new form of “Government” that was in France. This new “Government” later led to the declaration of the right of man being signed and led to the Legislative Assembly’s creation. The Final major role the National Assembly played was how it impacted the French third estate, not only that but how it influenced the entire revolution and its eventual outcome.

Reign of Terror:

The Reign of Terror was a period in France which lasted from around 1793 to 1794, It was a time of mass executions and a general time of “fear” for most french people. The Reign of terror was in a way “lead” by Robespierre, he was the general speaking voice behind who was to be executed, who opposed the revolution and who was still a firm believer in the monarchy. The Reign of terror came to an end through the Thermidorian reaction, when Robespierre was arrested and beheaded. The Reign of Terror proved a large role in the revolution because of the large amounts of “enemies of the state” that were executed. Sparingly most of the people that were executed were from the former third estate, they were executed merely because their ideas of the revolution differed from Robespierre. Though the Reign of Terror was a negative time, where hate flowed freely, it played a large role on who survived to spread their ideas. Had this event not occurred it is entirely possible that Robespierre would have of been silenced earlier and possible a new from of revolutionary idea formed.

Maximilien Robespierre:

Maximilien Robespierre was a very influential figure during the Reign of terror and the French revolution, not only was he a powerful figure he also dominated the Committee of public safety demanding they execute whoever he saw fit. Maximilien Robespierre was born in 1758 and was arrested and executed during the Thermidorian reaction in 1794. Maximilien Robespierre was a dominant political figure for a decent amount of time, he regulated the process of execution and determined who could be a potential threat to the revolution. The people that Maximilien Robespierre found adequate for execution consisted of nobles and people who followed against the revolution, but the largest quantity of people were from the former third estate, most were executed for merely disagreeing with Robespierre. At one point his demands and executions proved to be too much, The uproar that resulted was known as the Thermidorian reaction where Robespierre was arrested and guillotined. Maximilien Robespierre played a large standing role in how the revolution progressed. If for example he had not executed a certain noble or person from the third estate it could have of been that a new from of counter revolution began and the whole revolution was destroyed.

Sans-Cluottes:

The Sans-Cluottes were a group of aggresive radical revolutionaries from the third estate. The name Sans-Cluottes originates from the french term for "knee briches” however Sans-Cluottes means those without knee briches. The sign of not wearing the correct social garments was taken as a own sort of revolution. The Sans-Cluottes played a extremely large role during the revolution, not only did they make up the foremer third estate which was around 90% of the population, but when they decided to cause a civil upheaval nothing could stop them. They tore apart the Bastille with ease, and literally destroyed the very bricks it was made of. The Sans-Cluottes dominated the revoloution and controlled the final and inital outcome that it produced. It is very important that the Sans-Cluottes susceeded during the revolution, becouse if they had not it is highily likely that the whole revolution would have failed. It is important that we remember the Sans-Cluottes for their undying determination.

Storming of the Bastille:

The Bastille was a massive fortress in the center of Paris, that was known for tourtoring and being a death camp. For citizens of Paris the Bastille represented majopr royal authority and produced a large level of fear for Parisians. The Storming of the Bastille which occured on july 14 1789 was done so by the National Assembly, the reason for attacking it was becouse they needed the gunpowder that was held inside and becouse it defeated the potential that Louis’s Swiss troops could aid him in desteroying the rebelion. The Bastille, after invaded, was torn down, brick by brick, and all of it was done by hand. The conquering of the Bastille was a joyous day for revolutionaires all across France, the historic authoritive figure was no more. Revolutionaries fealt as if they could do anaything, not only that but July 14 is still celebrated as a national holiday in france, thus it is evident society still remembers the events of 1789.

Thermidorian Reaction:

The Thermidorian Reaction was the events that followed the death and execution of Maximillian Robespierre in 1794. The title the “Thermidorian” represents the newly established French calendar where June was called the Thermidorian month. The Thermidorian Reaction was sparked in responce to the Reign of terror that was imposed by Robespierre, His demands for executions of counterrevolutionaires became excessive. The people of Paris and France were enraged at him, he was seised and executed, thus ending the Reign of Terror. The events that sparked the Thermidorian Reaction were unjust however, if Robespierre was allowed to continue his ways, the entire outcome of the revolution could have of changed, so it is important that we recgonise what the Thermidorian Reaction was and what its causes were.

Womens March to Versailles:

The womens march to Versailles represented the outrage at the royal family, The spark behind the march was caused because people came to believe that the royal family was hoarding bred and grain at their palace in Versailles. When Parasians cought wind of this they marched angrily to Versailles, the croud consisted mostly of very masculine women, called so becouse of their muscular arms from working at fish markets, and weilding large knives. When the croud reached Versailles they stormed the palace in search for the queens head. The march represent how mis treated the people of France truly were, and how neglectied by their king and queen they were. The march ended when the piles of grain were taken from the palace and the King and Queen forced to live in Paris, thus giving the civilans all the power over the former royalty.

Jacobins:

The Jacobins were a group of revolutionaries that were famously known for consisting of followers from the third estate but were lead by the Bourgeoisie. The Jacobins were radicals they believed that there should be no king, and rather have a republic put in place. The Jacobins were truly the first from of revolutionaires that opposed the main regieme of monarchs. They are primairly recgonised for bing so demeanding and fierce tword working for their cause of freedom.

That doesn't look like 10,000?

I would recommend in the second paragraph where it reads 'The Committee also destroyed and closed down churches, for fear they held too much power, they eliminated old social customs, and incorporated a early form of a socialist nation by controlling what was produced in the country.' to replace the comma after power with a period, and then capitalize the 'T' in they, and then add in 'also' after they. OH and put a 'N' on the first 'A'. I.E. so it looks like this: "The Committee also destroyed and closed down churches, for fear they held too much power. They also eliminated old social customs, and incorporated an early form of a socialist nation by controlling what was produced in the country."

You can get ideas of putting together this essays at a price at Cheat House although I doubt that you will have enough time now to do this.

When you were given the assignment, were you given a list of bullet-points on the topics of the French Revolution that should be included?
