As I was finishing up the final parts of the rough draft for our paper, I found it interesting how the French Revolution of 1848 modeled much of what would happen in future revolutions, after the fighting had finally settled down. More specifically, what would occur between the previously allied forces working together to overthrow the existing regime. In the February Revolution, the petite bourgeoisie and urban laborers of France were united against the July Monarchy, but almost immediately after Louis-Philippe had abdicated his throne, infighting broke out between the two factions. It seemed that the only thing that they ever actually agreed on was the removal of a common opponent; after that, they argued on almost every aspect of France’s political and social structure. This is a thing that has repeated itself again and again throughout the revolutions that we have studied. The factions may have been quite different, but the general pattern of alliance, overthrow, and then fighting once again still prevails. I find it interesting, if just a bit strange, how very different revolutions can have very similar paths, even is they are founded on completely unrelated grounds, and fought for opposing ideals.
