went to the museum yesterday…

the South Carolina State Museum, to be precise. why this sudden road trip to Columbia, city that i don’t particularly like?

there is (until Monday) an exhibit on Napoleon Bonaparte. now, i’ve never been hugely interested in Bonaparte, but i am interested in Sir Arthur Wellesley, better known as the First Duke of Wellington.

it was a very interesting exhibit, and if you have the time to go see it, i’d highly recommend the trip.

quote:

“I used to say of him [Napoleon] that his presence on the field made the difference of forty thousand men.” – Field Marshal Arthur Wellesley, Duke Wellington, KG, GCB, GCH, PC, FRS

    Cool. I’ve wondered if it was any good.
