How Revolutionary was the Revolution?
In the late-eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, a wave of political revolutions swept through the Atlantic World. Inspired in part by Enlightenment philosophies about government by consent of the governed, these revolutions shook established monarchies in Europe and broke apart empires in the Americas. Yet these revolutions also had limitations in terms of how much political and social change they really brought about. In this activity, you will analyze an Atlantic Revolution and consider how significantly it changed social and political structures for the people who lived through it.
