Do not say you have never gotten angry. Do not say you have never been mad at someone. Anger is one of the human emotions that all people feel. Even way back in the 1800s, people got mad, sometimes even leading to the extreme of war (because war solves everything). On one particular occasion, four European countries got mad at how Napoleon Bonaparte used his power. They overthrew Napoleon and created a new congress.
The Congress’s job was to decide who would get the land, which the other European countries desperately wanted. They met in Vienna for one year, collaborated for a year on territorial issues, and dealt with one another for a year until decisions were made. They referred to this congress later as the Congress of Vienna. It helped to develop the European community maintain peace. When the Congress enforced its final act in the June of 1815, peace was at hand. That same peace continued for another ten years before war broke out.
The Congress had completed its intended job, and done so with efficiency. After the Congress’s last act the Congress broke up. It kept Europe alive while it was in it darkest days. It brought all of the other countries in Europe to a consensus. It allowed problems to get solved. If the Congress of Vienna had never convened, Europe’s history would be a lot different. Napoleon would have had a longer streak. The Congress of Vienna was Europe’s turning point in history. - Brenndan T.
