Macron, Trump celebrate Bastille Day in Paris
French President Emmanuel Macron along with his US counterpart Donald Trump are attending the Bastille Day military parade in Paris where US and French troops are marching side by side down the Champs-Élysées. The event commemorates the centenary of the US entering World War One and the annual Bastille Day holiday.
The French National Anthem.
La Marseillaise was a revolutionary song, an anthem to freedom, a patriotic call to mobilize all the citizens and an exhortation to fight against tyranny and foreign invasion. The French National Convention adopted it as the Republic's anthem in 1795. It acquired its nickname after being sung in Paris by volunteers from Marseille marching to the capital.

The French Foreign Legion.
"Le Boudin" is sung while standing to attention or marching by all ranks of the French Foreign Legion. The Legion marches at only 88 steps per minute, much slower than the 120 steps per minute of all other French military units. Consequently, the Legion contingent at the Bastille Day military parade march brings up the rear. Nevertheless, the Legion gets the most enthusiastic response from the crowd.
