Which of the following describes a major difference between the American and French Revolutions?

Answer 1Both wars were initiated by perceived injustices from the monarchies in question and inspired by Enlightenment ideas, and the French Revolution was, in large part, inspired by the American Revolution. Ironically enough, the French absolute monarchy had helped finance the revolt of the American colonists against perceived monarchical excesses and the debt thus incurred was part of the snowballing problems that led to the French Revolution.The two wars differ in some key ways:-- The American Revolution was a revolt of colonies against an overseas king, while the French Revolution was a revolt of the lower classes within their own country.-- The goals of the American Revolution remained more or less the same from beginning to end, while the goals of the French Revolution changed, becoming more radical over time.-- The American Revolution resulted in two separate states which have essentially retained those forms of government since while the French Revolution brought a succession of governments to France.The American Revolution was also not as violent as the French Revolution. French Revolutionaries (after storming the Bastille to start the Revolution) would execute any supporters of the king via the guillotine, whereas AmericanRevolutionaries were never violent per se towards Brits or supporters of the monarchy outside of warfare.The American Revolution was fought primarily in North America and the French Revolution was fought primarily in Europe.The American Revolution was fought primarily against the United Kingdom, the French Revolution was fought against the French government under King Louis XVI and various European Coalitions.Native Americans fought on both sides during the American Revolution, but they did not fight during the French Revolution.Both Revolutions overthrew the legitimate Monarchs and both were long and bloody.Answer 2The French Revolution was a lot more bloody and gory than the American Revolution. That is the most distinguishable difference.Answer 3napoleon was the 'George Washington' of the French Revolution...except for the fact that he did not help set up the constitution, believe in democracy, or want the people to rule themselves, instead of becoming president in a limited term, he declared himself emperor and tried to rule all of Europe---so...other than that, they are just alike!Answer 4The root cause of the French revolution was a natural disaster, a volcanic eruption in Iceland.It blacked out most of Europe and the crops failed in France. However, the aristocracy was still living the high life and the hungry hordes stormed the palaces.Answer 5American RevolutionAmerican schoolchildren receive an appalling dose of propaganda on this subject. Given that in the grand scheme of things, it wasn't so very long ago, it's shocking how much of what we think we know is simply legend.Even at the time, for example, King George III of Great Britain was called a tyrant and held to blame for all of the evils visited on the Colonists by his government, even though he was only slightly less a figurehead than the current queen, Elizabeth II. Also, Britain even then was actually a highly democratic country, relatively speaking. It had long been one of the pillars of the British Constitution that the people needed to give their consent to being taxed. This was the original purpose of Parliament.Now. in the mid-18th Century, what was known as the French and Indian War in the Colonies broke out. The British and the Colonists won this, but it cost the British Treasury a great deal of money. And since all this money was laid out defending the Colonists, it was decided to recoup some of the costs by introducing taxation for the first time to the Colonies. The taxes were not especially onerous; the colonists' main grievance being that they had not consented to them. This was one of the most important causes of the discontent which led to the American Revolution, and when it was over, the founding fathers kept what was good when forming a new constitution. The English system and concept of Common Law, based on precedent, remains in place today. The upper and lower houses of congress, also, being based on the Westminster system of Lords and Commons.French RevolutionThe French Revolution, on the other hand, was the result of centuries of oppression, with an utter failure to modernize. France's population was subject to a huge amount of stupid, counter-productive, and contradictory conventions and laws dating back to the Middle Ages. For example, trade was terribly hampered by ancient laws and feudal dues so that shipping goods from one part of France to another was held up at every town by the local dues and tithes demanded. This was an enormous hindrance to internal trade. A farmer could have his entire crop ruined if the local lord rode a hunting party over it, and there would be nothing he could do about it, though his taxes would be due nonetheless. Taxes he had no say over, unlike in England. The French Parlement, the Estates-General, had not met since 1614, 175 years before the beginning of the Revolution, and did not have the power to regulate taxation in any case, merely serving as an advisory body to the Kings of France, who obviously had little use for it unless in a desperate crisis, as was Louis XVI, when he finally convened it in 1789.The French peasantry were among the poorest and most oppressed in Europe, bearing on their stooped shoulders almost the entire burden of taxation. Although they knew they lived in the richest, largest, most powerful and most populous country in Europe, they lived in mud hovels and were starving. This is why the French revolution was so violent and resulted in such a dramatic change to the social order. The system (if one can even call it that) in place was so completely antiquated that reform was deemed impossible, and the old regime was completely swept away on the tide of progress.It should also be pointed out that King Louis XVI made a fatal error in judgment in supporting the Americans in their war for independence. Aiding a people in rebelling against their lawful sovereign set a dangerous precedent, and sowed the seeds of enlightenment and revolution among the intellectuals of France.Further Differences: The American Revolution was not concerned with the overthrow of the king, but with achieving independence, at last, from the British Empire, and forging a new nation on republican ideals, while the French revolution involved and took place in only one country, France, and focused, eventually, on total regime change. America's revolution was a war for independence, France's was not a war, although war certainly followed the revolution close on its heels.


How did the American Revolution impact the French Revolution?

The French Revolution was unlike the American one in many ways. In France the revolutionaries behaved like terrorists and even people friendly to the cause were executed. The American Constitution was far too liberal for the French revolutionaries.The French fought alongside the Americans against the English to accomplish a democratic, independent nation and the declaration of independence France as bankrupt at the time, so the people were very poor. Meanwhile they saw their monarchs in all their wealth and began to see them as tirans. The stories of the French soldiers that had fought in America began to spread and the French people wanted a democratic, independent non-royal state as well. Revolutionary ideas turned into real plans of attack. They wanted to rid themselves of a monarchy ruled by the royals, clergy and aristocrats. They wanted a say in the reigning of the country as well.Though, the French did not think it through very well, because when the revolution was over, the country was one huge chaos and no other European country wanted anything to do with the bloodthirsty French who had slaughtered thousands in their revolution. Secondly, the nation was bankrupt and could not even properly feed its people. Looking to the American Revolution was probably not a major factor as food.


Why was the American Revolution not really a revolution?

The Americans wanted to maintain the status quo from the pre-1770's, in which they were largely able to oversee their own affairs, under British protection. Had Britain established a means of allowing the Americans local autonomy, while still maintaining defence and foreign trade regulation (as they did 100 years later with the Dominion of Canada), the Americans likely would not have rebelled. It was only after a decade of political missteps by the British government, after the French and Indian War, in which they increasingly applied more and more direct control of the colonies (the Stamp Act, Quebec Act, Townson Act, the Intolerable Acts, etc...), did the colonies more toward seeking independence. Even after independence, the Americans did not seek to radically change the political and economic status quo, unlike the French and Russian Revolutions, making their revolution one of the most conservative revolutions in world history.


How has the American Revolution shaped democracy as you know it today?

The American Revolution gave the people the right to change their own government. It also gave the people the right to place restrictions on their own government. If the government puts in policies the people do not like, there is no coup d'état. There is simply the next election. Unlike Iran, the inability of one person to control all aspects created by the the Federal System and the division of powers, one person or group can not gain control over the election process. Thus, while corruption rules in some local areas, it can not seize control of the entire nation. For the most part however, The American Revolution did not have the purpose of creating democracy. It was more concerned with having a government that maintained order and security, giving the people the right to change the government if they did not like it, and with preventing the government from abusing the people. The idea that the government will feed and clothe everyone whether or not he is willing to work is French, not American.

What revolution is France famous for?

The French Revolution (circa 1789 to 1799) had influences in the following decades that profoundly affected Europe and western civilization. Unlike the American Revolution, which was fought against British colonialism, the one in France was more of a class struggle, as the rule of the aristocracy was challenged by the demands of the common people. Unfortunately, the rule of Napoleon from 1804 to 1815 was mostly a restoration of authoritarian rule, rather than a continued move toward democracy.
