Storyboard Text

  • The winter of 1788 was one of the worst France had seen in a while, wiping out crops and increasing shortages of food and causing even further inflation. 
  • The Winter has killed our craps what are we going to do!
  • We can no longer afford bread, and are starving
  • bread price has gone up
  • Inflation of the cost of bread left many people in the third estate unable to afford food. Their starvation heightened tensions between the poeple and the government as well. 
  • America's victory in their revolution and their new government inspired people in France
  • We have won our independence! Now we have democracy!
  • We could do that here in France!
  • Each estate in France only got 1 vote even though the 3rd estate made up 98% of the population. This angered those of the 3rd estate because it gave them virtually no say in the government. 
  • sorry guys looks like its 2 votes V.S. 1
  • Sorry guys we have no more money.  
  • France's 7 year war left them in enormous debt. Leading to France spending a whopping 50% of their budget on paying off debt.
  • Many french citizens in the 3rd estate were denied basic natural rights like life , liberty, and property. This angered them as they had been inspired by enlightenment thinkers like john Locke who said that they should/ could have rights.
  • We only own one small plot of land, a cow, and a rickety old house, unfit to live in and the government is still crushing us with taxes
