Europe was changing in the early nineteenth century, and the Congress of Vienna largely sought to slow and contain those sweeping changes. A slideshow presentation illustrates the details of the Congress of Vienna, including its three main goals, its subsequent successes—and, as would be seen in the many coming nationalist uprisings, its failures.
