History Club is a social learning online platform for young kids where they meet to explore, explain and exhibit all about various details from the past. Here are my learnings as a host of these sessions, open for all to discuss more.
The French Revolution was a watershed event in modern European history that began in 1789 and ended in the late 1790s with the ascent of Napoleon Bonaparte. During this period, French citizens razed and redesigned their country’s political landscape, uprooting centuries-old institutions such as absolute monarchy and the feudal system.
The French Revolution was a period in France when the people overthrew the monarchy and took control of the government. Lasting 10 years from 1789 to 1799, it began on July 14, when revolutionaries stormed a prison called the Bastille- which is now the celebrated Bastille Day (basically the French version of America’s July 4th!)
It began after the stock market crash of October 1929, which sent Wall Street into a panic and wiped-out millions of investors. Over the next several years, consumer spending and investment dropped, causing steep declines in industrial output and employment as failing companies laid off workers. Origin lied in United States and impacted large part of the world especially Europe.
Greeks and Romans are citizens of the two most celebrated ancient cultures in Western culture. While both made considerable strides in politics, literature, art and social organizations, their ways of life and political organizations varied significantly. While the Greeks’ artistic accomplishments outweighed those of the Romans, Rome had more success creating a unified empire. Differences in language, culture and currency have persisted to modern times.
