Napoleon Bonaparte was the famous leader and the Emperor of the French. Born in Corsica, Napoleon grew up under the First French Republic and served successfully in campaigns against the First and Second Coalition. After staging a coup d'état in 1799, Napoleon installed himself as the First Consul. Five years later, the French Senate made him emperor of the nation. During his reign, the emperor waged a series of wars called the Napoleonic Wars. His main goal was to spread the influence of France and expand his empire. Bonaparte's success was due in part to his alliances through his friends and family members who took command of nations that fell to French forces. After his failures in his invasion of Russia of 1812, his campaign for expansion came to an end. After being defeated in the Battle of Waterloo, Napoleon was imprisoned on the island of Saint Helena by his subordinates. While there, the emperor died of stomach cancer; however, scientists believe he died from arsenic poisoning.
Battle vs. George Washington (by Omnicube1)Edit
George Washington has just dismounted his horse and is rubbing his arms to keep warm. He walks slowly through a forest filled with trees showered in snow. Fog is blown from his mouth as he breaths. He collapses to his knees and places his hands in a praying position. "Lord, grant my men and I the strength to fight the British and bestow the freedom that you have guaranteed our great nation," pleas Washington. Suddenly there is a loud crack and a lead ball flies into the snow beside him. Washington turns around in shock and discovers Napoleon Bonaparte standing several yards behind him, holding a Flintlock Dagger. Napoleon smirks.
"Prayer is for the feeble, American." exclaims the French Emperor, and draws another Flintlock Dagger and fires. Washington craftily dodges the flying ball and draws his British Sea Service Flintlock Pistol and fires. The ball narrowly misses Napoleon who does not even flinch. Washington tries to quickly load his flintlock but the Emperor reaches him. He kicks away the pistol, grabs Washington, and pulls him up. He then punches him across the face, splitting the future president's right nostril. His nose begins to bleed. Napoleon then draws out the Flintlock Dagger again and slashes at Washington. He cuts across the chest and blood is spilled. The wound, however, is superficial. He retreats back over the hills. Napoleon, being a slow runner, follows the blood stains across the snow. He looks up at the hill when he discovers that the blood trail ends. He sees Washington armed with a Brown Bess. The mechanism flashes and the musket fires. The lead ball curves, missing the Frenchman. Washington grimaces in anguish.
"You poor American, muskets are useless!" shouts Napoleon who draws his Jean Lapage Carbine, unleashing a minié ball. It misses Washington, who pops back up and fires his musket. He finally makes his mark. The ball carves through the Emperor's left thigh, debilitating him.
"AHHH!" screams Napoleon. He draws his rapier.
"Come fight me you petty American!" urges Bonaparte.
"Gladly," replies Washington. He draws his cavalry sabre from the scabbard. He rushes down the hill and slashes. Napoleon parries the sabre easily. He stabs back several times, but Washington parries and dodges. Napoleon unleashes another stab with full force. The blade reflects off of Washington's sabre, leaving a deep cut through his right upper arm. He falls to his knees, his left arm grasping the wound. Napoleon steps behind Washington, picks up his dropped British flintlock, and pulls back the hammer.
"Prayer to your God that I grant you a quick, painless death." taunts the Emperor.
"Lord, grant me the power and swiftness to slay my enemy." prays Washington.
"He does not care," mocks Napoleon who prepares to fire the pistol. Suddenly, Washington spins around and stabs the Emperor with his bayonet. Napoleon chokes on his blood and collapses to the ground. He looks at the lifeless body.
"May God grant you the pleasure of eternal torment in Gehenna," exclaims Washington. He stumbles and gets back on to his horse.
"Break dawn with full speed, Nelson."
WINNER: GEORGE WASHINGTON
While Napoleon had weapons twenty years newer in age, Washington had the motivation of freedom that had proven a militia of small numbers to defeat an army of large numbers. Having such an experience, George Washington had what it took to beat Napoleon.
