Algeria - passage of the Iron Gates, 1845. Creator: Smyth

Algeria - passage of the Iron Gates, 1845. French colonialism in North Africa: ...an illustration of the Warfare in Algeria; with, glimpse of its Mountain Scenery; copied from a painting by a celebrated French artist...Various official despatches...clearly show that the subjection of the hostile tribes is not a very easy task...a despatch from Marshal Bugeaud...gives an account of his march in the mountains of the Matmatas, in search of the absconding tribes, and his endeavours to punish the mountaineers, who had taken part in the revolt...in several skirmishes...the Arabs offered a vigorous resistance. The French were, however, victorious in all these affairs...The Marshal concludes by saying that all the insurgents in the eastern portion of the province of Oran were struck with terror, and that he had reason to expect numerous submissions ere long'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII

Tilly in Rothenburg, 1631, (1936). Creator: Unknown

Tilly in Rothenburg, 1631, (1936). Woman pleading with Count Tilly in Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Germany. Catholic commander Johann Tserclaes, Count of Tilly (1559-1632) wanted to burn the city of Rothenburg, and condemned the city councilmen to death. The councillors, in an effort to appease him, offered him wine in a large cup. Tilly challenged anyone to drink all the wine in one go, and promised that if it was done he would spare the city. The mayor, Georg Nusch, succeeded in emptying the cup and so saved his city. The events have been commemorated annually since 1881 in the play "Der Meistertrunk" (The Master Draught). From "Bilder Deutscher Geschichte", (Pictures of German History), No.12, cigarette card album. [Cigaretten-Bilderdienst, Altona-Bahrenfeld, Hamburg, Germany, 1936]

Moscow on fire, 15th September 1812 (1882-1884).Artist: A Etienne

Moscow on fire, 15th September 1812 (1882-1884). After the indecisive but bloody Battle of Borodino, the Russians abandoned Moscow to Napoleon and the French invaders, setting fire to stores of food before they left. The French occupied and looted the city which, consisting mainly of wooden buildings, was largely destroyed by fire. Hoping for a Russian surrender, Napoleon waited in Moscow for five weeks, but with no capitulation forthcoming, short of food and menaced by Russian manouevres outside the city, he began in mid-October what would become an epic retreat. When the Grande Armee finally crossed the Niemen out of Russian territory on 7th December only 20, 000 men out of the original force of over 600, 000 remained. A print from La France et les Francais a Travers les Siecles, Volume IV, F Roy editor, A Challamel, Saint-Antoine, 1882-1884
