  • Long Term Causes of French Revolution 
  • I'm tired of this. We are paying too much for how hard we work. We barley have enough money for food. 
  • Bring back the Estates-General!
  • Estates General
  • Okay if I must. 
  • Tennis Court Oath
  • Agreed!
  • We must agree to never separate under any circumstances and never stop until we have equal justice. 
  • The peasants were tired of being taking advantage of because they were working hard and barley getting paid any money and the money that they did get was taxed to the government. 
  • Storming of the Bastille
  • The Estates General was a thing that was made cautiously by the king because the Estates General had not been called in 175 years but the higher classes had forced him into it so he had to do it and this made the peasants even angrier.  
  • Revolution Begins
  •  The peasants said we are tired of this and they made up a group called the National Assembly. A few days after, the king got worried and they locked up the meeting place. The National Assembly basically said. "You think that locking up our meeting place is going to stop us," and they met at another place, which was a indoor tennis court, and they made an oath swearing that never to separate and they will never stop until they have a sound and just constitution.

  • The peasants were still very mad because they weren't getting their way. So they said, "Okay, we'll be violent." But they realized hey needed weapons. So they stormed the Bastille, a prison, and got weapons and rebelled against the government. 
  • We need weapons! Lets storm the prison!
  • Yeah! Let's get them!
  • After the Storming of the Bastille, the people had got their request, which was equal justice, and the real Revolution began and they were happy, and this day is still celebrated today, and it is known as Bastille Day in France. 
  • Yes! We finally have freedom! 
  • Yes!
