The Storming of the Bastille

By Nicole

I’m going to discuss the Storming of the Bastille. The Bastille is a prison where the king’s enemies are kept and where the king stored his weapons. The people that lived around it were poor and could not afford food for their families. On 14 July 1789, the people decided to attack the prison, for gun powder and to free the prisoners. Many people died trying to get in the Bastille. Today, the French people still celebrate Bastille Day as their Independence Day. It is believed that this day was the start of the French Revolution. It’s a really interesting storing that’s true.
