No other American city fell under the influence of Napoléon's Imperial reign quite like New Orleans. Not only was the city briefly ruled by the legendary Emperor, but its fashions, fads, and fanatics were deeply shaped and transformed by him. It might have been his final home if the city's Bonapartists had their way, though he expired before they could "rescue" him from exile. Nevertheless, Napoléon still looms large over the Crescent City.
On Saturday, December 10 at 11:00AM at M.S. Rau Antiques’ Royal Gallery, Morgan Molthrop, author of JEAN LAFITTE'S PIRATE CODE, will talk about the man and his Louisiana legacy. It's a story you won't want to miss (even if you have to navigate around Napoleon Avenue to get here). Spread the word.
