Civil wars: Mexican Cession
Conflicts Over Ideas: French Revolution
The French Revolution is a period in the history of France over the years of 1789-1799 during which the monarchy was overthrown and major reconstructing was forced upon the Roman Catholic Church. The main cause of the revolution was that the French people were frustrated with the king and how he didn't deal with the poor living conditions, financial situations, food shortages, and certain religious persecutions. The people were angry and overthrew the king, then the British Colonies in America declared their independence and enforced it. In the end they got a new government and some of the issues were fixed, and the people were happy.
