  • The Czar and Nicholas II
  • We will help Russia move forward and build up industry.
  • Bloody Sunday
  • Soldiers, you may now fire your arms on the crowd.
  • The March Revolution
  • Down with the autocracy! Down with the war!
  • During the Russian Revolution, the czar were ruling over the people. This rule caused decades of social which eventually would lead to revolution. The czars used the autocratic rule which was continued through the different rulers. The son of Alexander III, Nicholas II ended up being the one who changed conditions unknowingly. A program was later started in order to improve the country by Nicholas' minister allowing industrialization in Russia.
  • The Bolshevik Revolution
  • Peace, Land, and Bread. I will help the peasants and workers and do whatever it takes to end this war.
  • Bloody Sunday was when the Winter's palace was approached by thousands of workers and their families. They went in request of their own freedom, better working conditions, and legislature. Nicholas II gave his soldiers orders to fire on them leaving hundreds dead and wounded. This act lead to many protests eventually giving Nicholas no choice but to grant them freedom. Russia's first parliament, the Duma, was created. Later, it was removed since he didn't want to share his power.
  • The Civil War and Lenin
  • We have now shown we can seize and maintain power.
  • The March Revolution occurred March in 1917. It was the time when women from Petrograd who worked as textile workers went on strike. This five day riot ran on the recent fuel and bread shortages. The thousands of women chanted the words, "Down with the autocracy!" and "Down with the war!" At first the soldiers went to fire at them but later decided to go on the women's side. Nicholas II then officially abdicated. After a year, his entire family were killed therefore ending czarist rule.
  • Stalin
  • Once Lenin became the new Bolshevik leader, he would start a new revolution. He had his own slogan which was "Peace, Land, and Bread." Once the Red Guards overthrew the provisional government, Lenin had full power. He chose to give factory workers more control and give the peasants some farmland. In order to end the war, he signed the Treaty of Brest Litovsk. This treaty made him give up a great amount of territory to Germany.
  • The Civil War which lasted from 1918-1920 was made up of a Red Army and White Army. The White Army included people who wanted the czarist rule, a democratic government, and others who wanted socialism. Leon Trotsky led the Red army as an expert leader. In the end, millions died in the civil war. This left chaos in Russia, but allowed the Bolsheviks to prove they could seize power. Lenin wanted to fix the economy and came up with the New Economic Policy. Russia soon recovered thanks to Lenin.
  • Joseph Stalin took part in the Communist Party and was of the most notable men. He changed his name to Stalin which in Russian means "man of steel." This fits his description of being cold hearted, impersonal, and really harsh. Stalin slowly climbed his way to being the head of the government. Lenin had the belief that Stalin was a dangerous person. Stalin had taken over the communist party by 1928. Once they exiled Trotsky, no one was a threat to Stalin leaving him as dictator.
  • I now hold all of Russia and have absolute power now as dictator.
