From this point forward, I will do what is best for this country just like my father!
Bolsheviks and Mensheviks 1898-1920
WE WANT SOCIALISM
Repeat after me! We want socialism!
Sign the pact!
Nicholas inherited the throne in 1894 after his father died. He made poor decisions with the country he ruled, so his people were not very happy. After Bloody Sunday and World War l, he removed himself from the throne. His family then got murdered by the Bolsheviks in July 1918.
Revolution of 1905
Cmon! Let's get it!
Lenin and the Bolsheviks wanted socialism by revolution and the Mensheviks wanted pursuit of democratic goals. Lenin created his own Bolshevik party in 1912. The Mensheviks got angry and walked out, and they tried to recreate another party, but it did not work out.
World War l 1914-1918
Stalin had control over all of the party members’ appointments so he was then able to build his base. He gained power and proceeded to exile people. In 1939, Stalin signed a pact with Germany, but Hitler betrayed him. Stalin then died on March 5, 1953.
Lenin in Control 1917-1924
During 1890 and 1910, the population in many Russian cities were getting overpopulated. Food got very short over the years. Russian workers protested and many unarmed protesters were murdered. With many angry workers, they striked throughout the country.
World War l began after the assasination of Ferdinand. Germany, Austria-Hungary, Bulgaria, and Ottoman Empire fought against Great Britain, France, Russia, Italy, Romania, Japan, and U.S, but the U.S. did not join the war until 1916. The war ended once Germany was forced to seek armistice.
Let's go men!
Vladimir Lenin was the leader of the Bolshevik group. Red army and White army eventually fought. Lenin made all the grain to go to his Red army, so many people died of famine. A treaty between Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Transcaucasus created the U.S.S.R.
