Vive la French Bastille Day

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.
