[World history as told by college students - mangled
moments of civilization from Term Papers and Exams...]
Along came a man named Robisieu Thermidorean who saved the people. The
revolution evolved through monarchial, republican, and tolarian phases until
Napolean performed a coo in 1799.
Napoleon was ill with bladder problems and was
very tense and unrestrained. As his power leaked away his body became a symbol.
He was later troubled by Spanish gorillas, who formed a sore in his side.
Americans, of course, wanted no involvement in the French and Indian War because
they did not want to fight in India. This led to the Stamp Act, where no stamps
could be issued unless they bore the American mascot.
Another final straw in the camel’s pack was when Britan tried to bar colonists
from crossing the Appelation Mountains. Many Colonists became convicted patriots
after reading Horse Sense by the escaped Englishman
Another problem was that France was full of French people.
Dickens made this
point in The Tail of Two Sisters, which he required us to read.
France was in a very serious state. Taxation was a great drain on the state
Napoleon fertilized all his life. His only son died by a sphere.
Revolters demanded liberty, equality and fraternities. Fraternity breeded pride
in the nation and therefore thicker political boundaries. Victims of the terror
were rolled to the gilotine in tumblers, an unpleasant thing for all involved.
Many of these unfortunate people became known as Emma Grays.
Tea formed a large surplice. The Boston Tea Party was held at Pearl Harbor. The
Quebec Act was an Intolerable Act because it would have required Americans to
learn French in school.
The American colonists lived on a continent and England was an island. Thus the
Americans wanted independence.
The Americans had to mustard an army. Benjamin Franklin, already famous as
inventor of the light bulb, persuaded French King George III to help the USA.
The use of Haitian troups by the British violated the rites of Englishmen
The British defeated the French from 1793 to 1815, but at gastronomic cost.
The French Revolution was like a tractor. It gave people the understanding that
you need change in order to make tracks in the world. The
Third Estate was
locked out of its motel and had to do its business on a tennis court. This led
to the Tennis Court Oath. This act of small deviance was the fuse that led to
the explosion that blew up the government.
Yorktown was sight of Robert E. Lee’s greatest victory.
Washington defeated the
Allies at Gettysberg. He was the first and only president to be elected
anonymously by the Electoral College.
Thomas Jefferson was president, founder of
the University of Virginia, and author of the
Decoration of Independence.
