Books that influenced the revolution, such as Diderot's Encylopedie and Rousseau's Contract Social, as well as works 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 of the revolution."
