THE DEATH OF NELSON AT THE BATTLE OF TRAFALGAR & WELLINGTON MEETING BLUCHER AFTER THE BATTLE OF WATERLOO (SET OF 2)
Set of two original antique steel engravings

The Death of Nelson:
Engraved by Charles Sharpe after Daniel Maclise.
Published by The Art Union 1876

Shortly before 1.30pm Nelson, who had steadfastly refused to cover the stars on his coat was hit by a bullet from the mizzen top of the French galleon Redoutable. In order not to discourage the Victorys men, Nelson threw his handkerchief over his face before he was carried below. The sharp shooters in Redoubtables tops virtually cleared Victorys exposed decks of men.

Noticing the damage being done, Midshipman Pollard and the Signal Quartermaster King, took a keg of bullets and muskets, and kept a steady fire until no men remained in Redoubtables tops.

Wellington Meeting Blucher after the Battle of Waterloo:
Engraved by Lumb Stockse after Daniel Maclise.
Published by The Art Union 1875

To the accompaniment of British cheers and a Prussian band playing God Save The King, Wellington and Blucher met near the inn of LaBelle Alliance on the Genappe road. It was agreed that the Prussians would pursue and harass the fugitive French. The British were in no state to move, whole battalions collapsed where they were from exhaustion, regardless of the scenes of carnage around them. Wellington had 15,000 casualties, Blucher 7,000 and the French 25,000 all within the area of not much more than two square miles.
