    What do you predict for the French revolution exam? I'm hoping for a question on the origins of the 1789 rev, they're usually the easiest. I'm
    Not sure about what might come up though. My teacher said that Napoleon's domestic policies probably won't because it came up last year.

    they attempt to overhaul the political system making it democratic

    end the Terror, provide stability and end the dominance of the sans-culottes and further revolutionary insurgency

    put down opposition in provinces - white terror

    Bring peace with foreign powers for a few years, but then wage war on them again (Napoleon and French armies manage to annex various states or create satellites in the countries bordering France such as Belgium and Lombardy. winning the right bank of the Rhine from Prussia etc.)

    longest standing revolutionary govt. (up to that point)

    end of the terror isnt the directory, the thermidorian reaction takes place when the national convention is in place

    i see what you mean about the wars and things but we learned when we did napoleon as we linked it to his rise to power, sorry

    It's like the pre-Directory. The official Terror ends with the Coup of Thermidor and the dissolving of the Terror mostly in the Thermidorian Reaction continues into the Directory.

    I'm doing it and I'm terrified. I think I just about have 1789 - 1799 sorted but 1786-89 is a mystery to me I'll need to read up on that.

    I'm doing controversy 2 so I'm just reading through Napoleon's stuff now trying to specifically address the main bullet points. As others have said, the Bourbon restoration is a bit of a worry - I doubt I could write an essay about it with more than 2 or 3 points o_o

    If anyone wants to help me then go for it lol! On the bright side, I think I just need to get an E in this exam to give me a B overall. If I want an A overall then I'll need an A in this exam (not sure how that works but...) so I've pretty much said goodbye to any hope of an A now.
