July 14 is France's "Independence Day." On that day in 1786, an outraged group of Parisians stormed the Bastille fortress and forced King Louis XVI and his wife Marie Antoinette to take refuge. The aristocratic form of government was overthrown by the citizen's actions and was replaced with their modern republic of today.
