Bastille Day is a French national holiday celebrated on July 14. It commemorates the storming of the Bastille in 1789, an act that marked the beginning of the French Revolution. The Bastille was a prison and stronghold that was a sign of the absolute power of the monarchy. Capturing the fortress was seen as a symbol of liberty and equality for France’s citizens, and ushered in the birth of a new France.
