HISTORIOGRAPHY OF FRENCH REVOLUTION The French Revolution has perhaps attracted more attention in history than any other event and its study involves what other professional historians have said about it. The ‘classic’ interpretation of the French Revolution in historical scholarship was the Marxist approach which sees the French Revolution as a bourgeois revolution, marked by class conflict. The French Revolution was not simply a political struggle from an absolute monarchy to democratic republicanism but represented a deeper shift from feudalism to capitalism. According to the Marxist historians, the Revolution was led by an alliance between the bourgeois elite and popular classes against the landowning nobility. The greatest success of such an alliance occurred in 1789 but by 1791, revolutionary events were marked by class conflict which in turn produced an urban political movement by the sans-cullotes.

La Marseillaise - France in the United States/ Embassy of France in Washington Published on December 20, 2013 On July 14, Bastille Day, La Marseillaise, maybe the best-known national anthem in the world, is sung all over France. In fact, the anthem was not created in Marseille but in Strasbourg during the heat of the Revolution. General Kellermann, who as at the head of the Army of the Rhine in 1792, asked Captain Rouget de Lisle, one of his officers who was a poet and musician in his spare time, to compose a battle march to be played as the soldiers were leaving for the front. Although he was only given about 20 hours, Rouget de Lisle took a violin, locked himself in his room and composed all night. The next day, the captain presented the new war song.

The mainstream media, concerned with the racial anxieties of white readers, typically portrayed black athletes as apolitical and unthreatening—their decency and gentleness away from the field emphasized. It perpetuated an unthreatening and uncomplicated view of black sports figures—wresting them from the reality of prejudice, its continued effect on their lives, and their own reactions to it. Overall, black periodicals enthusiastically followed the careers and personal lives of African American athletes, earlier and with far greater frequency than mainstream publications.
