A long long time ago there was a country called France. The people were very angry. They were angry because the poor were taxed while the rich had to pay nothing. This country had many other problems like pollution. The people would dump their waste in the streets. The government did nothing to clean up the cities. There was lots of violence because there wasn’t really any police or stability. From all of these issues people eventually stood up for themselves and fought against the government. This begins the French Revolution!
The meeting of the estates-general

The storming of the Bastille
The general estates meeting had all three estates. the 3rd estate was very upset about paying taxes and they where sick of it. At this meeting none of there problems were solved and they grew angrier.
The March on Versailles
The third estate wanted to go to the meeting but they were locked out. They went there to give there complaints but they couldn't even go. So they went to the tennis court and refused to leave unless they had a new constitution.
