Lecture 7 Outline The Age of Revolutions In the late 18 h century there occurred two revolutions that forever changed the world The revolution that began in the American colonies was instigated by Great Britain s decision to clamp down on her colonial offspring with taxes and regulations that the American colonists did not particularly like What happened was a war that ended with America emerging with her independence Then the Americans decided that there government needed changing as well The result was the Constitution of the United States The changes coming to America fueled a revolution in France The French Revolution became quite complex and deadly before it ran its course Then justas the French thought things would settle down for them a new menace emerged Napoleon Bonaparte s grobfor power caused all of Europe to react and resulted in a continental war that dragged on for years By the early 19th century Europe was slowly being restored Amerca s Revolution The
