Storyboard Text

  • The Bolsheviks took control of all the bridges, post offices, train stations and other crucial buildings around Petrograd to ensure that nobody could enter or escape the city
  • 10,000 red sailors and 20,000-30,000 soldiers entered the Winter Palace through doors which had been left open
  • They were first met by about 1,000 soldiers of woman's battalion. Knowing they would be easily defeated, they surrendered
  • Next, they were met by 500-1,000 volunteer soldiers, who also surrendered. One thing the Bolsheviks had forgotten was how big the palace was. It took them a long time to find the officers to arrest
