The Napoleonic wars are one of my favourite time periods and sometimes I wish I could be in Wellington’s army fighting in the Peninsular war until you remember the lack of amenities we take for granted. It would be nice to follow Wellington from Portugal through to France victory after victory bringing the Spanish their freedom and helping to bring Boney himself down. Finally to be at Waterloo the closest run battle of the entire War. There was the brief aside in the war of 1812, oh to have a time machine and go back and tell the British commander don’t charge the cotton bales at New Orleans. Here he is Napoleon himself.

America doubled in size. The war of 1812 gave the USA it’s national anthem based on appropriately an English beer game drinking song. Income tax was invented because of the LIA, Frankenstein was born in a chateau in Switzerland. Railways became a reality and mass transit was born. All caused indirectly by the LIA.
