Answer 1 Both wars were initiated by perceived injustices from themonarchies in question and inspired by Enlightenment ideas, and theFrench Revolution was, in large part, inspired by the AmericanRevolution. Ironically enough, the French absolute monarchy hadhelped finance the revolt of the America…n colonists againstperceived monarchical excesses and the debt thus incurred was partof the snowballing problems that led to the French Revolution. The two wars differ in some key ways: -- The American Revolution was a revolt of colonies against anoverseas king, while the French Revolution was a revolt of thelower classes within their own country. -- The goals of the American Revolution remained more or less thesame from beginning to end, while the goals of the FrenchRevolution changed, becoming more radical over time. -- The American Revolution resulted in two separate states whichhave essentially retained those forms of government since while theFrench Revolution brought a succession of governments to France. The American Revolution was also not as violent as the FrenchRevolution. French Revolutionaries (after storming the Bastille tostart the Revolution) would execute any supporters of the king viathe guillotine, whereas American Revolutionaries were never violent per se towards Brits orsupporters of the monarchy outside of warfare. The American Revolution was fought primarily in North America andthe French Revolution was fought primarily in Europe. The American Revolution was fought primarily against the UnitedKingdom, the French Revolution was fought against the Frenchgovernment under King Louis XVI and various European Coalitions. Native Americans fought on both sides during the AmericanRevolution, but they did not fight during the French Revolution. Both Revolutions overthrew the legitimate Monarchs and both werelong and bloody. Answer 2 The French Revolution was a lot more bloody and gory thanthe American Revolution. That is the most distinguishabledifference. Answer 3 napoleon was the 'George Washington' of the FrenchRevolution...except for the fact that he did not help set up theconstitution, believe in democracy, or want the people to rulethemselves, instead of becoming president in a limited term, hedeclared himself emperor and tried to rule all ofEurope---so...other than that, they are just alike! Answer 4 The root cause of the French revolution was a natural disaster, avolcanic eruption in Iceland.It blacked out most of Europe and thecrops failed in France. However, the aristocracy was still livingthe high life and the hungry hordes stormed the palaces. Answer 5 American Revolution American schoolchildren receive an appalling dose of propaganda onthis subject. Given that in the grand scheme of things, it wasn'tso very long ago, it's shocking how much of what we think we knowis simply legend. Even at the time, for example, King George III of Great Britain wascalled a tyrant and held to blame for all of the evils visited onthe Colonists by his government, even though he was only slightlyless a figurehead than the current queen, Elizabeth II. Also,Britain even then was actually a highly democratic country,relatively speaking. It had long been one of the pillars of theBritish Constitution that the people needed to give their consentto being taxed. This was the original purpose of Parliament. Now. in the mid-18th Century, what was known as the French andIndian War in the Colonies broke out. The British and the Colonistswon this, but it cost the British Treasury a great deal of money.And since all this money was laid out defending the Colonists, itwas decided to recoup some of the costs by introducing taxation forthe first time to the Colonies. The taxes were not especiallyonerous; the colonists' main grievance being that they had notconsented to them. This was one of the most important causes of thediscontent which led to the American Revolution, and when it wasover, the founding fathers kept what was good when forming a newconstitution. The English system and concept of Common Law, basedon precedent, remains in place today. The upper and lower houses ofcongress, also, being based on the Westminster system of Lords andCommons. French Revolution The French Revolution, on the other hand, was the result ofcenturies of oppression, with an utter failure to modernize.France's population was subject to a huge amount of stupid,counter-productive, and contradictory conventions and laws datingback to the Middle Ages. For example, trade was terribly hamperedby ancient laws and feudal dues so that shipping goods from onepart of France to another was held up at every town by the localdues and tithes demanded. This was an enormous hindrance tointernal trade. A farmer could have his entire crop ruined if thelocal lord rode a hunting party over it, and there would be nothinghe could do about it, though his taxes would be due nonetheless.Taxes he had no say over, unlike in England. The French Parlement,the Estates-General, had not met since 1614, 175 years before thebeginning of the Revolution, and did not have the power to regulatetaxation in any case, merely serving as an advisory body to theKings of France, who obviously had little use for it unless in adesperate crisis, as was Louis XVI, when he finally convened it in1789. The French peasantry were among the poorest and most oppressed inEurope, bearing on their stooped shoulders almost the entire burdenof taxation. Although they knew they lived in the richest, largest,most powerful and most populous country in Europe, they lived inmud hovels and were starving. This is why the French revolution wasso violent and resulted in such a dramatic change to the socialorder. The system (if one can even call it that) in place was socompletely antiquated that reform was deemed impossible, and theold regime was completely swept away on the tide of progress. It should also be pointed out that King Louis XVI made a fatalerror in judgment in supporting the Americans in their war forindependence. Aiding a people in rebelling against their lawfulsovereign set a dangerous precedent, and sowed the seeds ofenlightenment and revolution among the intellectuals of France. Further Differences: The American Revolution was not concerned withthe overthrow of the king, but with achieving independence, atlast, from the British Empire, and forging a new nation onrepublican ideals, while the French revolution involved and tookplace in only one country, France, and focused, eventually, ontotal regime change. America's revolution was a war forindependence, France's was not a war, although war certainlyfollowed the revolution close on its heels. ( Full Answer )
What are the differences and similarities between the French Revolution and the American Revolution?
Both the American and French Revolutions occurred in the same era, both overturned rule by a Monarch, both were more-or-less guided by the ideas of Enlightenment and had economics as a central issue. The American Revolution ended in a Democracy, and the French Revolution brought forth first anarc…hy, then dictatorship. In general terms, the American Revolution came about because the British government did not fully realize the seriousness of the unrest and dissatisfaction which soon developed in its colonies in North America. The British government in London considered the distant colonies more as a possession than as an extension of its territory and people. Ill-will between the British government and its colonies in North America began to develop after 1763. The American colonies had enjoyed a large degree of self-government, and they wanted even greater freedom from British control, so they resented the imposition of stronger British rule and heavier taxes. The colonists refused to pay these taxes, and in 1773 the Boston Tea Party was staged to dump incoming tea into the harbor rather than pay taxes on it. Troops were sent into Massachusetts to strengthen British authority. Other events which aggravated the growing dissatisfaction in the colonies were new laws which limited westward settlement, restricted colonial trade with other countries and required colonists to house British soldiers stationed in their communities. All these laws are passed without consultation of the colonists. When the American Revolution erupted in 1776, King Louis XVI of France supported the American colonies in their bid for independence from the United Kingdom. Little did the King know that he had helped bring about his own downfall. French military and financial support seriously weakened the French economy. In 1789, the same revolutionary fervor crossed the Atlantic Ocean and erupted in France. The effects of these revolutions spread around the world, as absolute monarchies in many other countries were replaced much more peacefully with limited constitutional monarchies, republics and other democracies. The American Revolution officially began with a document, the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. The French Revolution officially began with an action, the Storming of the Bastille on July 14, 1789. The most obvious difference was that the American Revolution resulted in the newly independent United States, whereas the French Revolution overthrew its own government . However, the French people were greatly impressed with the ideals of freedom and democracy sought by the new United States, and these greatly influenced their thinking. In the 1780's, Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson came to France as diplomats, and their presence in Paris greatly impressed the French people. ( Full Answer )

A revolt is any conflict in which a group fights against an authority. If its participants fail in defeating the authority, the name of the revolt becomes "rebellion," and its participants are called "rebels," as in Shays' Rebellion and the Whisky Rebellion. If the revolt succeeds, it can be called …a "revolution," and its participants are "revolutionaries," as in the American Revolution and French Revolution. During the middle of the revolt, when it is not clear who will win or lose, the conflict remains called a "revolt," (or, specially by the authority, a "rebellion") and sometimes this name sticks even after the conflict has subsided, regardless of who loses or wins.. Another interesting point is that a war in which a single country is basically divided, each side fighting for political authority, is called a "civil war" if the rebel side (the side that does not have control of the government while the war is being fought) fails, and a "revolutionary war (a.k.a. revolution)" or "war of independence" if the rebel side succeeds. For example, if the Confederate fighters had won the American Civil War, it would probably be called the "Confederate Revolution.". P.S. Many of these terms are confused by the media and others, so its generally safest to use "revolt" or "rebellion" in most circumstances and to call their participants "rebels." ( Full Answer )

Answer . While both revolutions succeeded at overthrowing an absolute monarch, the two differ fundamentally following their initial abolition of old government. The Americans were able to come together in 1787 and form a stable and exemplary constitution and government following their revolution…, calling upon and learning from democratic experiments and theories from the past. The French however opted to discard the past, choosing instead to look solely to the future. So, while the Americans were able to learn from the past, unite under the leadership of George Washington and form the most functional democracy to that date, the French viewed the past as of no worth, soon fell into a "reign of terror," and eventually fell under the rule of yet another absolutist, Napoleon Bonaparte. . Answer . France had a few good revolutionist like marquis De Lafayette, but since there conventions were public, the crowd would start yelling so they could not be heard. But the real reason was they were not ready to be a free people, that was because they were not moral and virtuous. Most did not even believe in God, which if you look in the American revolution everyone of the founders believed God, and a high percentage of the American people also believed in God. So my answer is a quote by Cleon Skousen, "A free people cannot survive under a republican constitution unless they remain virtuous and morally strong ." ( Full Answer )
An object rotates on it's axis (Spins) - Day An object revolves around another object (Orbit) - Year So for the Earth.

Both the French and Russian revolutions occurred because of two main reasons. Both of these revolutions were the direct results of bad leadership and a bad economy. These two reasons along with other factors caused both of these revolutions. Although they were both similar, they also had differences…. A difference between the two is that the Russians had an unsuccessful "pre-revolution" in 1905. Another difference between these two revolutions is the fact that the French turned towards a democracy while the Russian government became communist. Both the French and Russian revolutions had similar causes but ended up with different results. Both of these countries had different internal factors which cause the results. The Russians had Lenin and the French had the Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen. I would also like to point out 1 more similarity between these two revolutions and that is the fact that both Czar Nicholas II and King Louis XVI were executed soon after the revolutionaries took power. It's just strange to see how two similar countries with so many similar reasons for revolting would end up with so very different governments. this is one of the differences.there were many more.

war is fought against enemy from outside the country but revolution is for purging the . internal political & social elements with fresh ideas
The Russian Revolution was mainly nationwide violence and rebellion against the government but there was also lots of indirect violence, whereas the Mexican Revolution was more of a cultural reformation and rebellion of a single dictator.
The similarities are that the French leader, Louis XVI, and the Russian leader, Nicholas II were both rulers who didn't really want to be the ones in charge. They both wanted to live simple, relaxing lives, and their subjects paid for it. Their leaders made poor financial decisions, putting the town…speople into economic crises. They people never liked Louis and Nicholas because of things like this, and they wanted to overthrow them. In both revolutions, the rulers and their families were executed. The main difference between the two revolutions is that the French revolution resulted in a democratic government and the Russian resulted in a communist government. ( Full Answer )

When America broke away from Great Britain the French decided they would to because they saw that it was possible to break away from Great Britain. Also it was a good time to because Great Britain was weak from just finishing battling America.
Of course, America is a country, and Texas is a state (formerly a republic); but there are some similarities that should be considered first. The American revolution was fought to free the colonists from being controlled by England. When the colonists were victorious, they created the United States …of America. As for Texas, it too was in a struggle for independence-- first from Spain, and then from Mexico. But that is also one of the differences: the American revolutionaries only had a single country -- England -- to fight against. But Texas had to free itself from Spanish rule and then later, fight to free itself from Mexican rule. Once Texas became a republic, it began to create its own government, including its own president. The United States recognized the government of the Republic of Texas, as if it were an independent nation. But Mexico refused to recognize it, causing still more battles to be fought. And that is the other difference-- when America won the Revolutionary War, England did not continue to attack. ( Full Answer )
The way the words are usually used today, revolution and orbit both refer to the same thing, the movement of a planet around a sun, or the movement of a satellite around a larger body, usually a planet.The word revolution usually refers to the over-all gross movement of a planet or satellite. The wo…rd orbit is a noun or a verb. As a noun it refers specifically to the path the orbiting body follows. As a verb it refers to the same over-all movement as the word revolution.There are some variances in the use of the word revolution. The context will almost always clarify ambiguities. The standard use of the word revolution, though, is equivalent to the orbiting of a body around another body. Rotation refers to the spin of a body on its axis. ( Full Answer )
That is a very good question. I'm not even sure there is any difference at all... [Start] Revolution and terrorism are not related at all. It's like people and computers. A person can use a computer, but they refer to very different things. A revolutionary can use terrorism to achieve his goa…ls. But terrorism and revolution is in no way the same thing. Terrorism generally refers to the use of "terror." The goals can be freedom, liberty, and justice or for popularity and influence. It generally involves extreme violence such as mutilation, assassination, and so on to gain attention and force authorities to concede / come to the bargaining table. Ex. capturing and mutilating government officials on television. Generally makes other officials vary afraid for their lives and families and therefore very willing to appease the terrorists. Revolution however refers to the complete overthrow of a government by citizens. Generally invokes the ideas of social contract. A revolution can be bloodless as in The Glorious Revolution (UK) or it can be extremely gruesome with mass murders and prolonged warfare. Also, generally implies successful overthrow of the government. The winners write histroy. So when the gov wins, they get labeled as rebels / criminals. When the revolutionaries win, they call themselves revolutionaries. People generally have a beautiful view of revolutions as great moments where people strives to achieve magnificent goals such as liberty in face of extreme hardship. Revolutions tend to be the most gruesome and bloody types of violence. Sides are not clearly defined. Powerful individuals who don't chose a side or are unsure generally end up dead. Rarely do revolutions have amazing leaders as was the case in America where we had a whole set of similarly minded and very gifted individuals who followed their beliefs. Even when successful, most leaders who were excellent at gaining popular support and etc. turned out to be terrible governors afterwards which lead to long periods of instability and a general break down of law. -AshLikeSnow [End] ( Full Answer )

There were two Russian Revolutions in 1917, the February Revolution and the October, or Bolshevik Revolution. In the February Revolution, the revolt began as a spontaneous unorganized demonstration against the Tsar and his government. Over 200,000 workers, peasants and soldiers in Petrograd went …to the streets in mass protests and strikes. The protests spread to other cities as well. When the army units stationed in Petrograd refused to obey Tsar Nicholas II's orders to stop the riots, they refused and even joined the demonstrators. Nicholas's ministers convinced him that only his abdication would stop the rioting. He realized he was now powerless and abdicated. There was no military action against the Tsar to forcibly overthrow his government. As far as the October, or Bolshevik, Revolution, this was not at all a revolution by the people of Russia. This revolution was nothing more than an armed insurrection by members and supporters of the Bolshevik Party in order to take over the government that had been set up after the Tsar abdicated. It was not a popular revolt. In fact many other revolutionaries, including some Bolsheviks, were against it. ( Full Answer )

In the October Revolution, Vladimir Lenin and his Bolshevik followers were the ones who revolted against the Provisional Government then in place. This revolution was more of a military coup by a small group of revolutionaries rather than the popular revolt the February Revolution had been. ( Full Answer )
The difference is that the Bolshevik Revolution is only one half of the Russian Revolution. The "Russian Revolution" of 1917 consists of two separate revolutions by two separate groups against two separate governments. One revolution was the February Revolution in which workers, soldiers and peasan…ts demonstrated so fiercely against the Tsar's mismanagement of government that he abdicated in favor of the Provisional Government. The second revolution is the October Revolution, which is called the Bolshevik Revolution. The Bolshevik party led by Vladimir Lenin overthrew the Provisional Government and took over. Sometime the "Russian Revolution" is said to include the revolution in 1905 that was started by the Bloody Sunday massacre. This may have set the scene for the 1917 revolutions but it did not overthrow the existing government and it was twelve years before the 1917 revolution. ( Full Answer )

In astronomical terms, we use the word "rotation" to refer to themotion of an object spinning; the Earth spins, and rotates aroundits axis in one day. Revolution refers to the movement of an object around anotherobject. The Earth revolves around the Sun, taking 365.24 days. In some cases, the tim…e of revolution and the time of rotation isthe same; the Moon revolves around the Earth and rotates around itsown axis just fast enough to keep the same face turned toward theEarth.

In one sense, an orbit is the path a satellite follows aroundits primary and a revolution is the process of the satellite movingin that orbit. .

One revolution is the time a satellitetakes to return to the position in its orbit above a particularlocation on its primary.
