It was in 1917.
This is where things start to change in Russia. The Czar of Russia is questioned into whether or not e should stay in power.
Women wanted food and better working conditions. It was International Women's Day. They wanted change.
No one worked today as a protest to the Russian authorities.
People thought the Czar didnt care about the people. The Czar didn't even know that the people were upset with him till it was too late.
The Provisional Government in Russia believed that they should honor their allies in World War 1 and Lenin did not agree.
The Provisional Government got rid of the death penalty, it granted political prisoners and those in exile, ended religious and ethnic discrimination, and granted civil liberties.
Lenin was living in exile when the February Revolution transformed in Russia. Once the Provisional Government allowed political exiles back into Russia, Lenin came on a train home.
He called for a new revolution in Russia. Also he called out that the Provisional Government haven't give any land or bread to the people of Russia.
When Lenin breaks all the promises he has made, the people call for a civil war. It was the whites(against Soviets) and the reds(the Bolshevik regime).
Lenin thought the whites would free the czar so he ordered the royal family to be killed.
This is where Lenin tries to take over Russia with his Bolsheviks.
Lenin believed that the people of Russia was ready for another revolution.
A secret meeting with the Bolshevik party leaders was held.
When Lenin took over he took over the telegraph, power station, strategic bridges, post office, train stations, and state bank. With all of this happening not single shot fired.
