What is your favourite major Revolution? Might wanna throw in a quick answer as to why as well.
I'm asking this because I said something about the Mexican revolution in history today... I didn't even know there was a Mexican revolution. I just had burritos for dinner the night before. Anyway, I said it was my favourite and she started talking about it really enthusiastically.
Seeing as I've only studied two Revolutions, mine would have to be Russia...Although, the Mexican one sounds a lot more interesting. I don't know anything about it though, so I'll stick with Russia.

the bitter end.

I think one of the most well fought was actually the Texas Revolution, since it was fought with brilliant strategy and tactics on the part of Sam Houston.

lol @ Obama socialist ad above

French Revolution. By far the most epic revolution, and obviously it's just so interesting. Poor King Louis lololol. The American Revolution isn't nearly as awesome especially when King Louis gave us all kinds of support to beat Britain

Dance Dance Revolution

The Haitian Revolution was the only permanently successful slave revolt. That makes it pretty noteworthy. So is the fact that it was fought against France after the French Revolution.

Uh.. I don't like revolutions. The people involved in them probably aren't the biggest fans, either. You sick freaks. XD

Also: Revolution > Wii. :D

My great-grandparents were actually caught up in the Mexican Revolution...my great-grandfather was a Baptist pastor in one of the towns Pancho Villa was raiding...I can't remember the whole story right now, but my grandmother told it to us all the time.

The Texas revolution in my personal favorite though, as it's deeply ingrained in my heritage. :P

My country's history is able to fill more books about grand empires than revolutions, so I don't know, maybe the Russian communist one?

The American revolutionary war for someone reason intrigues me much more than all other revolutions.
Don't know why... I just like reading about it I guess.

Same. But I know the reason why I like it.

A place with a small population, easily invaded, very little ways to get weapons, very little communication means, somehow beat the best army in the world at that time. :P (I do know how too. Guerilla Warfare for the win~)

BOLSHEVIK! For sure. Lenin had the right things going on in his head, but after he left power the communist ideals left as well and the country did not stay communist anymore.

And no, China and Russia are not Communist Countries. Don't challenge me before reading Marx's work. Communism would never work out in the world anyway.

Well my favourite revolution and the only one I know of would be the Russian Revolution, since it was bloodless and awesome. <3
