As a member of the Napoleonic
Historical Society you will receive the NHS Newsletter, a bimonthly bulletin featuring historical articles on Napoleonic personalities and events, book reviews, museum descriptions, notices of upcoming events of Napoleonic interest, and anything else that might be of interest our readers. For example, did you know there are more than fifty Napoleonic Museums in the world, or that there are at least a dozen Napoleonic libraries here in the United States available for your personal use? Or that Napoleon liked to cheat at cards with his family and friends, taking a boyish delight in seeing how outrageously he could misbehave before getting caught?

Our newsletter covers the arts, food, news of recent discoveries related to the Napoleonic era, weapons, locations, campaigns and both well-known and little-known people . While of course we focus on people and things French, we don’t neglect the British and other participants in our era. We also feature current events that relate to the Napoleonic era, including conferences, museum exhibits and concerts.

You can view a sample Newsletter by clicking on the links below. This sample was published in two parts. Current newsletters contain as much material, but published in a single document.

January-February 2018 Part 1
January-February 2018 Part 2
