And thus, the United States of America was born. In , it was the people of France that overthrew their monarchy; one that had been in power for centuries, shaking the foundations of the Western world. However, while the American and French Revolutions represented a historic shift in world politics, they were, perhaps, still not the most revolutionary movements of the time. They purported to be driven by ideals that all people were equal and deserving of freedom, yet both ignored stark inequalities in their own social orders — slavery persisted in America while the new French ruling elite continued to ignore the French working class, a group known as the sans-culottes.
