~Regency Wednesday~ Waterloo

Wellington at Waterloo by Robert Alexander Hillingford 
The Battle of Waterloo took place Sunday, June 18, 1815. It was the battle that effectively ended Napoleon's bid for dominance. It took place in a small area near Waterloo of present-day Belgium and was the bloodiest battle ever seen to that point in time. Both sides lost over 20,000 men. (Hard to consider that a win.)
