We just need to reconcile this Connection with that for "Revolutionary Events" - at the moment they both contain Independence Hall. The simplest I guess is to concentrate "Revolutionary Events" on those specifically involving military, irregular or "mob" (as opposed to a "constitutional" or political) action in pursuit of a political or social objective.
We will still have 3 left - in fact I am sure there must be others among all the Revolutions over the years in the towns and cities of Europe at least! Does anyone know the detailed history and topography of such events in eg Budapest, Warsaw, Paris and Prague? I feel we should continue to maintain a very specific link with the inscribed location and a significant event rather than just to a whole town/city and "revolution". E.g. Perhaps Budapest should be in as the Budapest Uprising of 1956 significantly included (started with?) a march to the specific/significant Parliament building? This "event" and detailed location should be in text in the connection if not otherwise clear.

Ah I meant to update the the Revolutions one with Prague, The Student protests that started the Velvet Revolution were focused on Národní Street at the bottom of Wencelas Square and it was at the theatre here that Civic Forum was founded and Vaclav Havel announced the end of communism in Czechosolvakia.

To also take into consideration Declarations of Independence the 'Velvet Divorce' of the Czech and Slovak republics was signed in the Tugendhat Villa in Brno.
