Parisian crowds headed for the hotel des invaldies. They did not find enough gunpowder so headed to Bastille. 2 members went to negotiate with the governor of the prison but the crowds grew impatient and pushed through causing firing to begin. De launey was captured and decapitated and paraded around on a pole. This encouraged the constituent assembly to draw up a consitution for France.
