Very Important Autograph Letter Signed March 21, 1814 Duke Of Feltre To Augereau
Everything is lost for honor. Very valuable original signed autograph letter (two lines handwritten by the Minister of War and his signature). From the minister of war, henri jacques guillaume clarke, Duke of Feltre, to the Duke of Castiglione, the Marshal charles pierre françois augereau commander-in-chief of the army of lyon. We are the day after the so-called battle of limonest. This is the beginning of a long list of defeats in this damn france campaign.
Less than 15 days later. On 6 April 1814 Napoleon 1st abdicated for the first time.
This letter is moving because we read in turn, the annoyance, impotence, lies and accusations of traitorry, but above all the vain encouragements and the emphasis of military honour. A beautiful testimony of history, a master's play for the napoleonids in the broad sense. Rare document for a private collection.
