This may deserve more than a redirect, but was previously completely missing; I figured a redirect was better than nothing. -- Jmabel | Talk 21:22, Dec 17, 2004 (UTC)

Doesn't the 14th of July celebrate the storming of the Bastille rather than the fete de la federation?

This is a suspiciously cheery and positive article. While the participants didn't know the events and conditions of the following decade, readers today do (or should). It would help if some connection was made within the article to the Reign of Terror and the killing of Louis. -Acjelen 14:44, 14 July 2006 (UTC)

Googling "fete federation" brings up a lot of original material that might be used and quoted to enrich anmd correct this article. I noted that the broadside illustrated proclaims a mass said, not by Talleyrand, but the Abbé Maury, a figure in his own right. --Wetman 12:40, 13 August 2006 (UTC)

Correct English name?[edit]

So, if "Bastille Day" is not the correct English term, what is? Mdotley 17:07, 22 September 2006 (UTC)

Constitutional question[edit]

The article refers to the celebration of the constitution establishing the constitutional monarchy; which constitution is this? Wikipedia doesn't have an article for it: the earliest revolutionary constitution they have is the one ratified in 1791.
