From the Paper:

"Many countries were going through transitions that the people didn't approve of and some countries had other governments controlling them. The Revolutions of 1848 basically exploded because of all the tension building up from all the things that were going wrong all through Europe. Many died during the violent revolutions because of either combat or lack of food. The revolutions caused people to change their priorities of fighting: they rather keep what they have safe then loosing it all to get more. The surprise Revolutions of 1848 caused changes in Europe that affected them for a very long time. Their impact changed governments of countries and the way people thought about war even if they were in desperate need of something. So many died because of the problems Europe was undergoing. People tried to better these problems by rioting to get what they needed. But in turn this made it worse. It caused the influential Revolutions of 1848."
