In 1894, Alfred Dreyfus, a Jewish captain in the French army was accused of high treason for selling military secrets to Germany. Despite his efforts to prove that he was innocent, he was sentenced to life imprisonment at Devil?s Island. He stayed there for years, even though there was evidence that another man was guilty. After a hundred years since he was accused, and two trials, the French army finally stated that Dreyfus was innocent. This trial is famously known as the Dreyfus affair. This event changed the world deeply, as it elevated Anti-Semitism, enraged Jews, and divided France into groups.

German Unification The search for a German identity began in earnest after the end of the Napoleonic Wars. Herder?s concept of ?Volkgeist? and the rise of the Burschenshaft and Gymnasiums spread this idea throughout the German states rapidly, leading to repression by Metternich. ?????????????????????? Originally German fraternities, the Burschenshaft encouraged dueling and other martial arts (shooting) to synthesize growing nationalist feeling with a ?sense of honor.? Germans began seeking links to a historical past, while rejecting influences that diluted or compromised their own national culture or spirit. These included folk traditions and pre-Christian German mythology, then undergoing a renewal under the influence of the Romantic Movement.

Palmer Chapter 10 1 Napoleonic Europe X. Napoleonic Europe pp. 417-452 The impact of France under Napoleon on Europe was based on military subjugation. Some peoples worked with Napoleon to gain changes; in other cases, resistance to Napoleon was the factor that brought change. The period from 1792-1814 was not a world war, but a series of short, sharp, distinct episodes; only Great Britain remained at war for the full period, and only in 1813 was there full cooperation in the field against Napoleon. The period is complicated by the continuation of past stories: Britain?s economic growth, Russian pressure on Poland and Turkey, Prussia?s push for German leadership, and Austrian dreams of territorial expansion.

Judging John Adams National Security-9 John Adams did a great job of protecting our country from foreign and domestic threats. For example, France used privateers to attack U.S. merchant boats. This hurt the economy as well as citizens. So John Adams sent diplomats over to France to discuss a treaty to stop France from attacking U.S. merchants. France asked for a bribe but the U.S. diplomats refused. This angered the French and almost started war. But, John Adams stopped the war by having peace talks and the tension between the United States and France died down. This prevented war and stopped the attacks on U.S. merchant ships. Economy-10
