Storyboard Text

  • During WWI, when most men were away fighting, women took the roles and jobs the men left behind. The revolution of 1917 was the aftermath of horrid working conditions and little food.
  • By the second day, February 25th, more than 150,000 men and women protested, and soon, the city of Petrogard was nonfunctional due to the number of protesters, and the lack of workers
  • By March 2nd, Czar Nicholas II was forced to officially abdicate his rule, which spun Russia into a mess of different authorities attempting to take complete control of Russia.
  • Two main political groups emerged from this chaos; Provisional Government and Petrograd soviet. Provisional Goverment eventually ran the country. And while they believed that they should honor their commitment and continue to fight in WWI, Lenin disagreed.
  • Vladimir Ilyich Lenin, leader of the Bolsheviks, returned from exile to Petrograd in April when Provisional Government took control.
  • On October 25th, 1917, bolsheviks led a second 1917 revolution in Ocober. Leninists took over the city, controlling ports, power station, and banks. With barely any shots fired, Lenin was in control of Petrograd by the next morning.
