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.
