Napoleon's Propaganda Techniques McKenzie Caffey
Danielle Machado
Period 1 1. “Women are nothing but machines for producing children.”

Simplification ( Stereotyping)
Even though this was said by him, it most likely was used against him. He Stereotyped women by saying they are machines for Producing children

1. The primary source found, by using search engines were very helpful to our project. It was very descriptive and held key quotes that would sway the peoples decisions. When putting another primary source next to this one it would stand strong because it is said/written by Napoleon himself. The questions that could be answered from this website are what Napoleon believed as a leader and his thought processes made while he was apart of the government. 2. “I closed the gulf of anarchy and brought order out of chaos. I rewarded merit regardless of birth or wealth, wherever I found it. I abolished feudalism and restored equality to all regardless of religion and before the law. I fought the decrepit monarchies of the Old Regime because the alternative was the destruction of all this. I purified the Revolution.”

Card Stacking
Napoleon is listing things that make him look good. 2. Another great primary source was found during the research of this project, based off of Napoleon and his propaganda techniques. Once again the article was very helpful to our project. On the site we found key quotes made by Napoleon himself. It was a very strong primary source and was relied heavily on. The questions that could be answered are based off of once again his beliefs as a leader. 3. "The French complain of everything, and always."


Glittering Generalites
The picture implies that Napoleon was a great leader but in all reality he wasn't. 5. "Soldiers of my Old Guard: I bid you farewell. For twenty years I have constantly accompanied you on the road to honor and glory. In these latter times, as in the days of our prosperity, you have invariably been models of courage and fidelity. With men such as you our cause could not be lost; but the war would have been interminable; it would have been civil war, and that would have entailed deeper misfortunes on France. I have sacrificed all of my interests to those of the country.
I go, but you, my friends, will continue to serve France. Her happiness was my only thought. It will still be the object of my wishes. Do not regret my fate; if I have consented to survive, it is to serve your glory. I intend to write the history of the great achievements we have performed together. Adieu, my friends. Would I could press you all to my heart."

The letter stating that he was leaving his Guards is a transfer. It is because even though this was a negative time in their lives it was still put across as a positive aspect.
3. Most of our quotes were found on this website. It held almost every quote made by Napoleon on this site. It was very descriptive and most quotes were using propaganda techniques. This primary source could answer many questions, including how he spoke to people and how he responded. This source was very helpful to the project and compared to other primary sources it was very strong. 5. The primary source found by Danielle was based on Napoleon’s farewell speech. It was a very strong source and when put next to other sources it is very true and steadfast. The primary source was very descriptive and very factual. Only a couple of questions can be answered from this following site, which is based off of his final statement made to his troops. 4. Our final primary source was a picture of Napoleon himself. Even though there aren’t many words based off of the picture it was still a strong source. It gave us a mental image of who Napoleon really was. Needless to say there aren’t many questions that can be answered from this primary source. This once again was another great source found by both of us.
