Storm the Bastille! Vive la France!
Bastille day is France’s national holiday to commemorate the storming of the Bastille. The Bastille was a prison that the French monarchy used to lock up anyone who did not agree with them. On July 14, 1789, a large number of French citizens gathered together to attack the prison and this was the start of the French Revolution.
