Happy Bastille Day and "Vive la France!"
In the late 1700s, France was ruled by a king.
On July 14, 1789, there was an uprising against the constitutional monarchy, and the people stormed Bastille.
Bastille was actually a prison, and it was a symbol of the monarchy.
The goal was to create reconciliation for all of France, promote unity, and purse liberty from the monarchy.
This uprising ultimately led to the birth of democracy in France.
Fete de la Federation was first held on July 14, 1790, the first anniversary of the storming of the prison at Bastille.
