Lonn Taylor, the Rambling Boy

On this episode of Rambling Boy, Lonn talks about July 14, which is Bastille Day. The holiday commemorates the seizure of the Bastille, a 14th-century fortress that once protected the eastern approaches to Paris, by a revolutionary mob on July 14, 1789. While France had very little influence on the development of Texas, Lonn reflects on the few historical French incursions on the area.
