Information about th e re be lli o n follows The political crisis during the German revolution of 18 4 8 4 9 once againintensified after March 1848 due to th e c la sh e s between revolution andcounter revolution. Th e cri si s w a s set off by a conflict between thePrussia n crow n an d th e B erlin constituent assembly because o f the dem andfo r th e dis missal of reactionary officers a nd the att itud e of th eFrank furt National Assembly to th e armistic e of M alms i n theGerm an Danish war over Schle swig Holste in. Popular demonstrations in wide regions of Germanyand sc a t t e red upheavalsturned against th e e mergence of coun te r re vo lutionary forces, and, incontinuing the revolut ion , t he y so ugh t to f ulfill their longstandingsocia l an d poli tic al demands. The conflict had smoldered between the majority of th e P r u s sianconstituent assembly and the government sinc e th e b eg in ning of August,with the government insistin g on p rote cti n g the crown and the leaderingthe army. Af ter a b lood y ass au lt on the militia by troops of the Si lesianfo rtres s Schw eid nitz on July 31, 1848 the majorit y of th e assemb lyendor se d an resol utio n offered in th e assemb ly by Jul ius Stei n o nAugust 9, calling upon th e governme nt to de m an d tha t al l officersabstain fro m politicall y reactionar y aspirat ion s and, if this wer e impossible , to call for t heir resig nati on from the ar my. The gover nment srefusal t o comply wi th th is decisio n aroused a ou trage among thepo pulation. Ma ny dem ocrati c and workers associ ation s sto od up inprote st agai ns t the ministry s approach. The Berlin militia promised to protect the constituen t a s s e mbly in theevent of a worsening of the conflict . On S ep te mb er 7, the assemblyintensified its demand pu t forwa r d o n Aug ust 9. On grounds that theassembly ha d interfer e d i n the administrative matters, theAuerswal d Hanseman n m inis try resig ned, and the crown accepted t his onSepte mbe r 10 . With its d ecision to pass a decre e on the army , the assem bly rose to a spire to be an actu al constituent , rath er tha n onlyconsulta tive assembly . As a result, i t becam e obviou s that, support ed byth e mass movement, i t was cap able of e ffectively oppos in g the counterrevolut ion. Parallel with the domestic political crisis in Pru s s i a , a protestmovement developed in mo s t other Germ a n st at e s in response to thearmistice treaty signed bet we en De nma r k and Prussia in Malms on August26, 18 48 an d t o th e atti tu de ofthe Frankfurt national assembly to ward thi s treaty . Th e war was started by Prussia at th e reque st o f the Ger manCo nfederation s diet in the spri ng of 18 48. I t w as unl eashe d by theattempt of Denmar k to anne x direct ly the duch ies o f Schleswig andHolstei n which we re connec ted to Denma rk b y a persona l union . Due to the increasing ly national e nthis iasm which Germ ans responde d to this wa r,Prussia too k a mor e restraine d approach. U nder Russia n and Britishdip lomati c pressure, Prussia a t the end of M ay had pulled bac k its t roops from Jutlan d and then, witho ut the consent o f the Rei c h ministry in Frenkfurt, conclud ed the armistic e of Mal ms. G erman nati onalists saw this i ndependent actio n a s tantamoun t to theabandonment of Schl eswig Holst e i n to Denmark. A t th e same time, byacting w ithout con sultin g it, this w a s a snub to the Frankfurt na tionalas sembly. The national assembly on September 8 initially rejec t e d t h e armistice ofMalms then, it rec o nsidered it s ha st y ac ti on on Septermber 16 andaccepted the treat y b y a nar row m ajo rity in a second vote. Thus thenation al a ssembl y backe d down in the face of Prussia. In th e eye s of thed emocrati c move ment this surrender was a n indica tion of it s degrada tionint o an in strum ent o f the count er revoluti on.
