  • Although the third estate made up 97% of the population, they only had one vote. They declared themselves the national assembly, and made the tennis court oath. The bourgeosies worked with the peasants.
  • The third estate stormed the Bastille prison in an attempt to free political prisoners. There weren't any, but this became a symbol of the revolution.
