Today in history
The February Revolution (known as such because of Russia's use of the Julian calendar) begins when riots and strikes over the scarcity of food erupt in Petrograd.
One week later, centuries of czarist rule in Russia end with the abdication of Nicholas II, and Russia takes a dramatic step closer toward communist revolution.
Here’s the rest of the story:
