July 14. In 1789, the citizens of Paris stormed the Bastille sparking the French Revolution and the overturning of the French monarchy. (Quelle bonne idee!) In 1868, the tape measure was patented. In 1881, Pat Garrett shot and killed Billy the Kid. In 1933, all German political parties except the Nazi Party were outlawed. In 1943, the George Washington Carver National Monument in Diamond, Missouri, opened, becoming the first national monument honoring an African American. In 1960, Jane Goodall arrived in Tanzania to begin her legendary chimpanzee study. Happy Birthday, Kate Gordon, Gustav Klimt, Woody Guthrie, Ingmar Bergman, Polly Bergen. It's Bastille Day! Mission: This land is OUR land--not his. Storm the failing White House.
