The French Rvolution
Once the harvest failed famines, plagues, and wars started the Revolution. This caused the government to raise taxes and bills. Many people died of hunger.
Ohh no! Our crops
Now what shall we do ? We are going to suffer a great loss.
One of the economic troubles that were during the French Revolution was that King Louis borrowed money from Britain and doubled the country's debt. Bankers stopped lending money and that became a problem.
I need to borrow some money from the bank
The third estate wanted their rights. So they all gathered and started war with the government.
We want our rights!!
Many people immigrated to America to get away from war and bloodshed. Still many people were killed.
This revolution caused many innocent people's lives. 85 percent of the people were peasants and middle class. Even though many people immigrated to America many were also killed.
