c. 1858: Photos of Veterans of the Napoleonic Wars: Each year on May 5, the anniversary of Napoléon's death, the veterans marched to Paris' Place  Vendôme in full uniform to pay respects to their emperor. All the men — at this time in their 70s and 80s — are wearing the Saint Helena medals, issued in August 1857 to all veterans of the wars of the revolution and the empire. Actually wearing their original uniforms and insignia.  The Grande Armee, Monsieur Mauban, 8th Dragoon Regiment, 1815
