The Insurrection of 10 August 1792 was a defining event of the French Revolution, when armed revolutionaries in Paris, increasingly in conflict with the French monarchy, stormed the Tuileries Palace. The conflict led France to abolish the monarchy and establish a republic.
In 1792 The House of Commons passed the first law banning the slave trade, after the UK Parliament was flooded with signatures on petitions to do so.
