  • The 3rd estate was locked out of the meeting hall, so they went to a nearby indoor tennis court. At the court, they all took an oath to never separate until a written constitution was wrote for France.
  • A mob of the 3rd estate stormed the prison of Bastille to get gunpowder for their recently acquired weapons. The Bastille is in Paris, France.
  • Break down the door!
