Happy Bastille Day!
Today is the anniversary of the 1789 storming of the Bastille, the fortress-like prison which was regarded as a symbol of the absolutism of the French monarchy. The event served as a rallying point and a symbolic act of rebellion and is often considered to mark the beginning of the French Revolution.
