Think of me when you are standing by where AS Johnston died through blood loss. He is undoubtedly one of the war’s great enigmas and what ifs.
Forrest came to the fore at this battle and one of my favourite generals was present too: Patrick R Cleburne, commanding a Brigade.
Hope the weather is not to bad.
Napoleon died 200 years ago today
Aged only 51, Napoleon Bonaparte died on St Helena May 5, 1821. Arsenic poisoning has long been believed to be the cause of his death, but at present, the original diagnosis of stomach cancer is considered more likely.
Opinions on Napoleon’s many deeds and achievements will probably diverge forever, but if anything, he was a memorable figure.
@kaleu great that you posted this . He was, indeed, a remarkable man. Not loved much by the English back then!
