DID YOU KNOW? John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, the only 2 people who signed the Declaration of Independence to later become President, and who eventually became bitter rivals, both died on July 4, 1826, on the document’s “Golden anniversary”.
WHAT: Celebrates the official start of the French Revolution, which would lead to a constitutional monarchy (albeit a rough road). Revolutionists stormed the Bastille, a prison/armory that symbolized royal authority, on July 14, 1789.
WHERE: In Paris and across France; big parties in New Orleans (a week-long party) and New York city (a block party on 60th street).
SYMBOLS: The Eiffel Tower; the French flag; the Bastille; red, white and blue anything
DID YOU KNOW? At the time the Bastille was stormed, France was ruled by King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. The King was deposed 3 years later; Marie and her husband were executed the following year (separately). Their oldest child survived, and she lived to be 72 years old.
Enjoy the holiday, however and wherever you are!
