Sinclair Dates

   July 14

   1698: Darien expedition sails, The first expedition sails from Leith,
   anchors at Kirkcaldy.

   1789: Bastille Day, Symbolic end of the French Monarchy and the
   beginning of the First Republic. The people of Paris rose up and
   marched on the Bastille, a state prison that characterized the
   absolutism and arbitrariness of the Kings Regime. The storming of the
   Bastille immediately became a symbol of historical dimension; it was
   verification that power no longer resided in the King as God's
   representative, but in the people.
