French Revolution Abroad


  • Edmund Burke
  • John Locke
  • Legislative Assembly
  • Jacobins
  • Girondins
  • Declaration of Pillnitz
  • War of the First Coalition
  • Brunswick Manifesto
  • Paris Commune
  • September Massacres


Why did Edmund Burke and John Locke have such contrasting views about the French Revolution?  What might this suggest about the overall strength of the Revolution and its connection to the Enlightenment?

Why were factions arising among the Legislative Assembly?  Briefly describe the Jacobins and the Girondins.

Why does France begin to go to war with other countries during this time?

How does war affect the French population's view of the king?

How does the Revolutionary government become even more radical during this time (consider the Paris Commune and the September Massacres)?

(Some material comes from outside of the book--you may have to look up some terms to answer them).
