American Revolution of 1775The French Revolution of 1789government and individual liberty.Several essential political documentswere created at critical times in historythat paralleled the ideas that drovethese revolutions. There were fivedocuments written between 1215 to1791 with the intent to guaranteenumerous rights for their citizens.3

THE GREAT CHARTERThe English Magna Carta (1215) established the principle that no one, including theking, was above the law. The abuses by King John caused a revolt by nobles who forcedthe king to recognizethe rights of noblemen.The Magna Carta,otherwise known as theGreat Charter,eventually came toprotect the interests ofother social classes aswell.

It alsoguaranteed individualrights to the nobility.4

THE GLORIOUS REVOLUTION AND ENGLISH BILL OF RIGHTSThe Glorious Revolution (1688) brought the first bill ofrights to the English people by the new monarchs, Williamand Mary of Orange. The document begins with a list ofgrievances against the exiled King James II. It justifies boththe right to depose the king and details the rights that mustbe protected by the new sovereigns.

THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION AND DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCEThe American Revolution (1775-1783)showed the world that rebellion against apowerful monarchy was possible. The ideasof the Enlightenment inspired the Americancolonists to demand the rights granted tothe English citizens. Thomas Jefferson'sDeclaration of Independence of 1776claimed that unalienable rights were thefoundation of all government, and hejustified American resistance to English rulein these terms. The Declaration ofIndependence is also important because itadvocated the principle of the consent ofthe governed. Jefferson's Declaration ofIndependence had an immediate influenceon the French people at this time.6

THE FRENCH REVOLUTION AND DECLARATION OF RIGHTS OF MAN AND THE CITIZENThe French Revolution against King Louis XVI began when the king clashed withthe Estates-General, an assembly similar toParliament. The Estates-General wrote itsDeclaration of the Rights of Man and theCitizen (1789) based heavily on theAmerican Declaration. The Assembly adoptedthis charter of basic liberties. The Frenchdeclaration extended individual liberties,consent of the governed, and protected theprinciple of due process of the law.7

U.S. BILL OF RIGHTSFinally, the U.S. Bill of Rights (1791) responded to earlier ideas about therelationship between individuals and their governments. The framers of the U.S.Constitution added the first tenamendments to the Constitution, known asthe U.S. Bill of Rights, to limit the powersof the federal government. The ideasoutlined in the English Bill of Rights werewritten into the U.S. Bill of Rightsguaranteeing them to the citizens in theUnited States.
