1905 Russian Revolution

Bloody Sunday

Sunday Jan 22, 1905
Saint Petersburg, Russian Empire

One of the major contributing factors that changed Russia from a country in unrest to a country in revolt was "Bloody Sunday". Loyalty to the tsar Nicholas II was lost when his soldiers fired upon people led by Georgy Gapon on 22 January 1905, who were attempting to present a petition to the tsar.
