Per. 7 A. This painting is an example of Glittering Generalities
because Napoleon did not look like this. He probably used
a painting like this to make people think that he was a
very intimidating man when he wasn't. Napoleon was a very short and fat man and the "Napoleon" in this picture is not. Baby, baby, naughty baby,
Hush, you squalling thing, I say;
Hush your squalling, or it may be
Bonaparte may pass this way.
Baby, baby, he will hear you
As he passes by the house,
And he, limb from limb, will tear you,
Just as pussy tears a mouse. B. This is an example of "transfer" propaganda.
British mothers would sing this to their children
at night to get them to go to sleep. The
children would associate the fear of Napolean
with not going to sleep. D. Napolean led his army, over a mountain
during the winter. A great feat for this time,
the picture however shows Napoleon on a
horse when in fact he rode a mule C. This picture is a form of transfer propaganda. It compares
Hitlers fall to the fall of Napoleon. "Say that all men are equal before God;
wisdom, talent and virtue alone
them." E. Napoleon said this in his letter to Egypt. This is card stacking because he fails to mention that women are not considered equal in his mind. A.
1.) Descriptive- because this is what Napoleon thought he looked like.
2.) Ideology, because this is what Napoleon thought he looked like or what he thought he should look like.
3.) This tells us about the beliefs of the "Elite" actually the beliefs of Napoleon.
4.) -What did Napoleon think of himself?
-How did Napoleon want people to look at him?
5.) -What were the "ordinary peoples" beliefs of Napoleon?
6.) This source challenges their argument because this is not what they beleived Napoleon to look like. B.
1.) This is desrcriptive because it is what little children thought would happen
to them if they did not go to sleep.
2.) This describes and ideology and behavior becuase it is what children thought would happen so their behavior would change and go to sleep.
3.) This tells us about the beleifs of the "ordinary people" It's from a child's perspective.
4.) -What did young children think of Napoleon?
- Was Napoleon threatening to children?
5.) The limitations of this type of source are that it is not real. Napoleon didn't walk around the streets at night looking to tear crying babies limb from limb.
6.) This kind of goes along with historians thoughts of Napoleon becuase he was seen as and evil and threatening man and that is what this lullaby made children think of. C.
1.) This is descriptive because it is what people thought of Napoleon's fall.
2.) It describes an ideology becuase it is how people related Napoleon's and Hitler's fall.
3.) I think this might be from both types of perspective. It compares Hitlers fall to Napoleons fall.
4.) -What happened to make Napoleon's empire fall?
-How do Hitler's fall and Napoleon's fall compare?
5.) The limitations of this type of source are that it doesn't come straight out and say what it means. You have to look at the picture and understand what it means.
6.) This compares with other historians beliefs because both Hitler's fall and Napoleon's fall changed the countries they invaded.
1.) This is descriptive because it is Napoleons way
of making people beleive this is what happened and what he rode to a battle.
2.) It describes an ideology because this is what Napoleon made people think of him.
3.) It tells you about the beliefs of the elite. Napoleon was high up in the ranks and this is what he thought of himself.
4.) -What did Napoleon want people to think of him?
The benefits of this kind of source are that this is what Napoleon though of himself.
5.) -What did the ordinary people really think of Napoleon?
The limitations of this type of source are that it only has one man's perspective.
6.) This source challenges historians argument because this is not what they say he looked like or what he rode over the mountain. E.
1.) This is prescriptive because this is what Napoleon thought should happen in the world. All men are equal. Not women.
2.) It describes and ideology. It is what Napoleon thought of the world and what many people started to beleive.
3.) It tells you about the beliefs of the the Elite.
4.) -What did Napoleon think of women?
-What were Napoleons view of men?
5.) The limitations of this type of source are that it is one man's perspective on something. Not a large group of people.
6.). This source challenges historians argument because most modern historians do not think the same way Napoleon did.
