John Surratt, member of the Lincoln conspiracy, 1866 (1955) Featured Print

John Surratt, member of the Lincoln conspiracy, 1866 (1955)

John Surratt, member of the Lincoln conspiracy, 1865 (1955). Surratt (1844-1916), pictured here in Papal Zouave uniform, was involved in an unsuccessful attempt to kidnap US President Abraham Lincoln with the intention of holding him for ransom in exchange for the release of Confederate prisoners of war. His mother, Mary Surratt, was executed for her involvement in the assassination of Lincoln, having given the conspirators accommodation in her boarding house. Surratt denied any involvement in the assassination plot, but fled overseas to avoid arrest. He served briefly in the Papal Zouaves in the Vatican City under the name of John Watson, before being recognised and escaping to Egypt. He was apprehended by US officials in Alexandria in November 1866 and was extradited to the United States for trial. He admitted his involvement in the kidnap attempt but continued to deny that he was involved in the assassination. He was eventually released after the case ended up in a mistrial with the statute of limitations having expired on all cahrges other than murder.

Battle of Hohenlinden, 3 December, 1800 Featured Print

Battle of Hohenlinden, 3 December, 1800

Battle of Hohenlinden, 3rd December, 1800. As France's General Jean Moreau was advancing towards Munich with 100, 000 troops, Archduke John of Austria was hoping to use his 130, 000 men to outflank him and cut off his supply lines. With the French seeming to be trying to do the same, John changed his plan and instead drove straight down the main road to Munich near Hohenlinden. Unfortunately, for the Austrians, he ran full into the waiting French who had taken strong defensive positions straddling the road. Excellent work on the flanks by General Ney, General Grouchy and General Richepanse shattered the Austrians, who fled. Moreau lost some 5000 killed and wounded, while John had to report 18, 000 casualties. Austria signed an armistice three weeks later

Napoleon at the Battle of Lutzen, 2 May, 1813

Napoleon at the Battle of Lutzen, 2 May, 1813. With a Prusso-Russian army of some 100, 000 men moving on a small French force at Leipzig, Napoleon Bonaparte decided to intercept the enemy. At the head of 120, 000 men, the French emperor detached Marshal Ney's III Corps at Lutzen to use part of it as bait to attract the attention of the enemy commanders Count Wittgenstein and General Blucher. By the time Bonaparte arrived on the field the French were more than 110, 000 strong and pressuring the Allies from the flanks. In the early evening, the emperor ordered his Guard forward and, together with flank assaults, drove the Russians and Prussians into retreat. French casualties were up to 20, 000 while the Prusso-Russian losses of up to 20, 000 would have been considerably worse if the depleted French army had not been hamstrung by a shortage of cavalry
