central to the revolution are displayed. Four basic areas are explored--the
three estates (aristocracy, clergy, and the general population) and their
concerns; the trial and execution of King Louis XVI and his Queen, Marie
Antoinette; the Terror under Robespierre and the execution of many of the
aristocracy and opposition; and finally the military and foreign views
