Napoleon at St. Helena

I recently showed two old newspapers on the US Forum - one of them from 1776 - the year the US declared

Independence. Papers of this age are rare and give an insight into how the public of the time viewed events.

This paper is again British and was published in 1816. Most of the news is of the King's Court and also a

multitude of adverts for curealls for boils etc. However, there is one article that will interest our Members on this

Forum - it concerns Napoleon's home on St. Helena and how it was set-up.
