Today we began by reviewing the strata of Russian society with the peasants at the bottom and the nobles and royal family at the top. Next we reviewed the most important events leading up to Bloody Sunday and then discussed 1905 (the first "revolution"). Next we examined the October Manifesto and noted the two promises the tsar extended to the country. This helped, but the Fundamental Laws of 1906 exposed the truth of Russian reform.
Tomorrow we will discuss the observations you made in your groups regarding the 1906 Laws. For homework, please read DeMarco pp. 37-41. Answer questions a-e in Ex #1 and #2.
