Bastille Day

15 Jul

Happy (belated) Bastille Day! Like most Americans, I vaguely knew that it’s France’s version of Independence Day. I think. I don’t know, I didn’t take my high school’s elective European History class and my knowledge of modern French history is sketchy at best. (Ask me about the cave paintings of Lascaux and Chauvet though!) So it was to my joy and delight to find that John Green, author and prolific vidblogger, had done a series on the French Revolution. Prepare to be educated, Third Estate!
