1: During the French Revolution I was a peasant, which is the third and lowest class or estate. It was a rough life, we starved as the nobility lived in extravagance. | Public Domain

2: In 1789 the meeting of the Estates-General was held & all 3 estates were called to vote on the new law. |

3: Someone suggested that the third estate name themselves the National Assembly & we could pass laws of reformation & become an absolute monarchy which was the first deliberate act of revolution. |

4: Three days after, the third estate delegates were locked out of their meeting room and they broke into the royal tennis court and would stay there until a new constitution was drawn up, it was called The Tennis Court Oath. |

5: Louis had his army of Swiss guards around Versailles after The Tennis Court Oath & everyone went crazy because of the rumors flying around saying things like foreign troops were coming to massacre the citizens of France. The people gathered weapons to defend the city from attackers & the Bastille was burned (a paris prison.) |

6: Rebellion spread from one village to the next causing rumors to circulate that outlaws were going to terrorize peasants & that caused a panic called The Great Fear. |

7: 3 weeks after The Great Fear the National Assembly adopted a statement of revolutionary ideals which was called The Declaration of the Rights of Man. Which said "men are born free and remain free and equal in rights." |

8: The National Assembly's reforms focused on the Church and they said that Church officials and priests were to be elected and paid as state officials. |

9: King Louis didn't like the new way of church and state so he questioned if he'd still stay a monarch & so he tried to escape the country but was caught and returned to Paris, this increased his enemies. |

10: For 2 years The National Assembly tried to create a new consitution for France & in September of 1791 it & Louis approved, it was a limited constitutional monarchy. It also created a new Legislative body called the Legislative Assembly which had power to accept and reject declarations of war. |

11: Emigres which were nobles and others who fled France hoped to undo the Revolution and restore the Old Regime. |

12: The Sans-culottes, however wanted The Revolution to bring even greater changes to France, they weren't upper class though. | Public Domain

13: The Jacobins were a radical political organization who were involved in the governmental changes in September 1792. |
