July 14th – Bastille Day
Over 231 years ago, on July 14th the French had finally seen a turning point in their revolution with the storming of Bastille. The fortress that once held prisoners freed soldiers ready to fight for an uprising. The fall of Bastille was celebrated in 1790 as the Fête de la Fédération and throughout the years continues to celebrate France’s constitutional monarchy and new unity.
