The Reign of Terror was a period of violence in the French Revolution, during which thousands of people were executed as enemies of the revolution. In the Reign of Terror, revolutionary leaders began to turn on each other. The Girondins who favoured the political system, fought a battle to the death with the Jacobins, who criticized the Girondins.During this year the revolutionary government got extraordinary powers and passed a number of harsh laws designed to intimidate or eliminate anyone who disagreed with the radical Jacobins. The law of suspects, for example, provided for the arrest of anyone of noble family or who had held office before revolution. Also a complete reorganization of the armed forces, and new legislation was passed to regulate business.
