This is a bit rubbish at the moment, I’m just not sure were I’m going with this. Any suggestions would be extremely helpful.
The American Revolutionary War
The French revolution was inspired by the successes of The American Revolution less than a decade before.
“One reason that this success lead to the French Revolution was that the French middle and lower class saw that it was possible to obtain basic rights and freedoms and to fight against the absolute monarchy.”
During the American Revolution both sides used depictions of martyrs often dying during the heat of battle.
The ideals that inspired the American & French Revolutions lead to a desire for liberty and democracy all over the world.
