Tom Marler HIST 102 Essay 2 06/28/2009 Did you ever wonder how a prison could represent the power of the people or be a symbol for the French revolution? Understanding how and what the Estates-General did for the country of France lead me to believe that Arthur Young’s observations were too vague. When the Estates- General was called to order it was significant to the country of France in several ways, however Arthur left a lot of detail out about the times. The Estates-General was called upon by Louis XVI to figure out his countries financial situation. The Estates-General was constructed of a three party system which was determined by social class. The first estate was made up of clergy, the second estate was constructed of the nobles, and third estate was composed of commoners. This made the peasants rejoice because they were given an estate and now had a voice. The third estate was hit the hardest with taxes, starvation, lower wages and bad harvest and had a chance to try and change that.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
