Key People of the Russian Revolution

Vladimir Ilich Ulanov was a Russian revolutionist, communist and politician. In the early 1900s the Russian government was in turmoil, as people began rioting and started rebelling the current Imperial rulers. Eventually the people won, replacing the Imperial government with a provisional one. On November 6 and 7, 1917, Lenin destroyed this provisional government. Armed with angry revolutionists who followed him, he and his allies annihilated the current government and took over many key government buildings, forming a new government with him in command. During his reign he revolutionized Russia.
