I’m not French in any way, shape or form but this is one date that always sticks in my mind. I did A level History…and w-a-y too much on the French Revolution. That has to be my excuse.
Fuedalism was abolished a few weeks after the storming of the Bastille but I seem to remember it as being a symbolic act of defiance. There were only 3 or 4 prisoners within its walls…and possibly a goat. *grin*
