Happy Bastille Day!

Shortly after the storming of the Bastille, late in the evening of 4 August, after a very stormy session of the Assemblée constituantefeudalism was abolished.

On 26 August, the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen (Déclaration des Droits de l’Homme et du Citoyen) was proclaimed.
