Liberty Leading the People by Eugene Delacroix

Bastille Day commemorates the storming of Bastille prison on July 14, 1789, the beginning of the French Revolution.

It is a national holiday in France, much like the 4th of July in the U.S., and marks the beginning of the great revolution and the birth of the republic.

Vive la France. Vive la Liberté.
