The French Revolution
Below are listed a collection of documents I have used in teaching my courses on the French Revolution. All are available as PDF files by clicking on the author or title. The columns are sortable by clicking on the column headings. (The sorting is done by your computer, so it may take a few moments if you have many programs running.) If you have any comments or suggestions, I am available at david.stewart@hillsdale.edu.

Please note that many other historical documents can be found on their own pages.
