Russian Revolution

Russian Revolution

On March 11, the troops of the Petrograd army garrison were called out to quell the uprising. That day, Nicholas again dissolved the Duma. The Petrograd Soviet issued Order, which instructed Russian soldiers and sailors to obey only those orders.

In the aftermath of the February Revolution, power was shared between the weak provisional government and the Petrograd. Leftist revolutionaries led by Bolshevik Party leader Vladimir Lenin launched a nearly bloodless coup d’état against the provisional government. The Bolsheviks and their allies occupied government buildings and other strategic locations in Petrograd.

The Declaration on the Creation of the USSR is a historical document which, together with the Treaty on the Creation of the USSR, formed the constitutional basis for the creation of the Union of the Soviet Socialist Republics as a multinational state.

The Civil War is the central event in America's historical consciousness. The war resolved two fundamental questions left unresolved by the revolution: whether the United States was to be a dissolvable confederation of sovereign states or an indivisible nation with a sovereign national government; and whether this nation, born of a declaration that all men were created with an equal right to liberty, would continue to exist as the largest slaveholding country in the world.
