The French Revolution


This Jackdaw effectively teaches the story of the Revolution from events leading up to the storming of the Bastille by the people of Paris to the complicated government and terror of the “Revolutionary Tribunal” that followed. Hands-on replicas of key historical documents — eyewitness accounts, London newspaper report, copies and translations of “The Declaration of Rights” and “Law of Suspects,” and even a poster with grisly details of “La Guillotine” and the fate of Louis XVI ¾ transport students to France during this turbulent time. Historian: Robert Lacey. The contents of this Jackdaw feature:
