Example text

In 1846 the Grand Duke of Baden had been forced to accept a liberal constitution. In consequence, the Baden representative assembly was elected on a wider franchise than in any other German state. Not surprisingly, the people of Baden were more politically conscious than most Germans. Throughout the 1840s liberal politicians in Baden had supported a united Germany. Now they put their views forcefully to an assembly of liberals from all the south-west German states (see page 21). This assembly, which met in October 1847, agreed on the urgent need for a German People’s Parliament.

Middle-class Germans were critical of systems which largely excluded them from participation in the political process, and in which they were restrained from free expression of their grievances by the censor and the secret police.

Middle-class Germans also wanted to see the establishment of a united Germany, which they claimed would ensure national prosperity.

This may explain the unenthusiastic support for revolutionary movements among peasants and their role in suppressing revolution by serving as loyal military conscripts. Across Germany, the peasantry, the vast majority of the population, lost interest in the revolution once the last remnants of feudalism had been removed. Indeed, many peasants felt hostility towards, rather than affinity with, the urban revolutionaries.
