Example text

Here the revolutionary link between the material deprivation of the French poor and the political aspirations of the French bourgeoisie was forged. On October 5, thousands of market women marched the 12 miles (19 kilometers) to Versailles. They forced their way into the National Assembly to demand action: “the point is that we want bread,” they shouted. The crowd then entered the royal apartments, killed some of the king’s guards, and searched for Queen Marie Antoinette (ann-twah-NET), whom they hated as a symbol of extravagance.

His brother, the conservative Charles X, inherited the throne. His decision to repudiate the constitution in 1830 provoked a mass uprising in Paris that forced him to abdicate. The crown then went to the king’s cousin, Louis Philippe (loo-EE fee-LEEP) (r. 1830–1848), who agreed to accept the constitution and extended voting privileges. Revolutionary violence in France made the British aristocracy and the conservative Tory Party fearful of democracy and mass movements of any kind. In 1815 the British government passed the Corn Laws, which limited the importation of foreign grains.

Rebelling slaves destroyed plantations, killed masters and overseers, and burned crops. Their emerging leadership relied on elements of African political practice and revolutionary ideology from France to mobilize and direct the rebelling slaves. The rebellious slaves gained the upper hand under the command of François Dominique Toussaint L’Ouverture, a former domestic slave, who created a disciplined military force. The 1794 decision of the radical National Convention in Paris to abolish slavery in all French possessions strengthened Toussaint politically.
