Gather as much information as you can to describe the following:
a) What happened as an immediate result of the revolution? Describe in detail who took over and how affairs were managed. Make a judgment about this first government.
b) What happened over time? Did this new government last a long time, or was it replaced quickly?
c) In each case, the revolutionaries had specific demands (goals) of the revolution. Were these goals met? Was democracy achieved? If not, why not? If so, at what point?
d) Analyze the contributions of the “revolution” that you are studying in the development of democratic concepts. Refer to the various bills of rights / documents / constitutions written as a result.
