To put it in a much simpler form, I think that the similarity between the two revolutions is that the public simply wants to rid themselves of their higher power. While they have similarities, I also think that they have a far larger difference. One and probably the biggest is that the French revolution attempted and failed to make around different regimes of government. Most of which failed to make any progress as a nation. The French revolution was also sprung by poverty, starvation, and some religious issues; which, probably is the reason why the French Revolution is a war thats far more bloody and violent than the American Revolution. The American Revolution was sprung from taxation without any representation, and unjust laws. The Britain imposed a series of direct taxes which, Americans cannot overlook for.
Americans protested vehemently at the idea that the Parliament in London could levy taxes without any American representation. Therefore, made them rebel against their monarchs for democratic societies. One other thing that I learned/Knew about the French and American Revolution is that, while France truly underwent a revolution within its own borders, I think that the American colonies fought a war, not of revolution, but of secession. In France, the revolutionary forces sought to overthrow an oppressive internal government. In America, the colonists fought to secede, or withdraw, from a repressive government thousands of miles and a wide ocean distant. Thats the things I learned about the American and French Revolution.
