EVERYTHING FOR AND BY THE PEOPLE
« For the Honour of France, for the sacred interests of Humanity »
(Napoleon the Great, 17th of Ventôse Year VIII – Saturday 8th March 1800)
At 10:45 on the 9th of January 1873, Napoleon III passed away in Chislehurst, England. Ever since, the 9th of January has been a day for honouring his memory and that of the civilians and soldiers who have worked for him, either under his leadership, or following his example.
For those who will be present/ taking part in the ceremonies on the 9th of January this year, don’t forget to mention it to those around you… particularly those who’d like to be there too.
For those who won’t be able to be present, this Facebook event is particularly addressed to you :
– Thanks to internet, you can (on Facebook and elsewhere) add a profil/cover photo that symbolises what the emperor represents for you.
– You can also invite friends for a meal among family and/or friends in honour of the occasion.
