Bloody Sunday: The Revolution of 1905
World War I
Who gets it?
Russia and Japan were competing for control of Korea and Manchuria. They signed a series of treaties, bur Russia later broke them. Japan retaliated by attacking the Russians at Port Arthur, Manchuria, in February 1904.
On January 22, 1905 around 20,000 workers and their families went to the Czar's Winter Palace. They were petitioning for better working conditions, personal freedom, and an elected national legislature. Nicholas II's generals had ordered soldiers to fire on them; more than 1,000 were wounded and hundreds were killed making this known as Bloody Sunday.
Russia was unprepared to handle the military and economic coasts of the war they were brought into. Prices were wildly inflated on the home front because food and supplies were dwindling.
