In Petrograd, Russia over 200,000 stickers whom were joined by women in bread lines, called to overthrow the Tsar. While the Zsar tried to get the Cossacks to attack, they refused. Two days later there were troops sent out to get rid of the protesters, but ended up shooting their commander and joining the growing group of protesters. And by March 14, Moscow had fallen. Due to this the Zsar was placed under house arrest in his cottage in a city nearby. On the 16th, the Soviet and the Duma came together and declared a Provisional Government. The new provisional government faced great power issues. The leaders of the new government misjudged how the Russian people felt with the war attribute with Germany. Lenin had previously been exiled due to the revolutionary ideas that he had. Germans helped sneak Lenin back inside Russia because they thought that it was cause chaos among the Russian people. This turned out to be in fact, true. He arrived back to Russia on April the 16th. Around the 16-18th of July, the Provisional Government began to fall. This is when the soldiers, mobs and the Bolsheviks tried to overthrow the government. They failed. Later on, the Bolsheviks gained the majority of people in the Moscow area. They now had a stronger military force on their side.
