Napoleonic Enthusiast from Boston

Postby Krupica720 » October 23rd, 2017, 3:15 am

Greetings all,

I am new to this forum and glad I found it. It is difficult finding others interested in this time period. I have been interested in Napoleon and the Napoleonic Era ever since I attended the 200 year anniversary reenactment of the Battle of Austerlitz in Czech Republic when I was 16. Luckily I have family in Brno, CZ and was visiting at the time...I guess it was fate! Ever since then I have studied and read books on Napoleon. I recently separated from Active Duty U.S. Army and currently serve in the Army National Guard. I am also a novice collector and own a handwritten letter from Napoleon (My most prized possession). It was written on July 3, 1808 in Bayonne, France and addressed to his Finance Minister Count Mollien just prior to his invasion into Spain and eventual placement of his brother Joseph as King of Spain. I think I will create another post so I can share pictures and create some discussion about it. Looking forward to learning more and conversing with like-minded individuals.
