Storyboard Text

  • The French Revolution
  • Go get the taxes from all the peasants!
  • Yes Ma'am!
  • Give me your taxes peasants!
  • No! I have no money for taxes and my children are starving. 
  • I agree!
  • We will no longer listen to the Estate General but instead, we will make our own constitution! 
  • The first and second estates both believed they didn't have to pay taxes and that only the third estate had to pay them. The first estate paid 2% of their income, the second estate paid nothing and the third estate paid 50% of their income.
  • We are here representing the King!
  • Since the third estate, the peasants paid 50% of their income toward taxes and they already didn't get paid a lot so they didn't have money for food for their families and children. 
  • Declaration of Indpedence said, "Men are born and remain free and equal in rights."
  • Finally, everyone has equal rights!
  • In June of 1789, the Third Estate was locked out of a meeting. So, the third estate went to a tennis court where they promised to never separate from each other until there was a written constitution made. The third estate also wanted their taxes to to be lowered and for other estates to have taxes.
  • The king sent his soldiers all already Paris because he thought the second and the third estate were going to overthrow him. The second estate had then got on board with what they were saying.  
  • The declaration of the rights of man reflected off of what the Dec. of Independence said. The declaration of the rights of man guaranteed citizens equal freedom of speech and religion. However, the declaration of the rights of man didn't include women. 
  • WOOT!
