Transcript of Napoleon Primary Source Project

Napoleon Primary Source Project Glittering Generalities This picture represents Glittering Generalities. It portrays Napoleon as a heroic person who is quite tall and slender. By: Amirah Smith & LaTonya Roberts "I was born when [Corsica] was perishing. Thirty thousand Frenchmen spewed on to our shores, drowning the throne of liberty in waves of blood... The cries of the dying, the groans of the oppressed and tears of despair surrounded my cradle from the hour of my birth." Plain Folk This quote stated by Napoleon shows the propaganda technique of Plain Folk. It shows that Napoleon was just like everyone else and that he was born on the same land as his people. This, also, portrayed him as a sympathetic person. Assertion "Soldiers, we have forced marches to make, battles to fight, dangers to encounter, but with constancy the victory will be ours; the rights, the honor, of our country will be reconquered. For every Frenchmen who has courage the moment has come to conquer or die!"
This quote stated by Napoleon shows the propaganda technique of Assertion. It shows that he is committed to winning the war and conquering even if it meant dying while in the act. Primary Source: Glittering Generaility 1.)This primary source is prescriptive. It shows what people thought Napoleon should look like.

2.)The source describes ideology. The picture shows how people believed a leader should look.

3.)It shows the belief of the elite which would be Napoleon. It is from the perspective of the ordinary people.

4.)Questions like "What was the appearence of the ideal leader during the French Revolution?" can be answered using this source. The benefits of using this source is to get a visual sense of the ideal leader.

5.)Questions about the war and when and where it took place can not be answered using this source. Some limitations of this source is that it's only a picture and it doesn't have any written information available.

6.) My interpretations would be close to the historians. The historians would probably have something to say about the soldiers, the horse, and their clothing because they know what they are looking for. Card Stacking "People of Italy, the French
army is here to break your
chains," Napoleon proclaimed,
"our only quarrel is with the
tyrants who have
enslaved you."
This is a quote made by Napoleon stating only positive
information. He's getting a crowd of Italians excited
about being free without mentioning the possibility of failing.
This assures them freedom before the battle even begins. Primary Source:
Plain Folk Primary Source:
Assertion Primary Source:
Card Stacking 1)This is prescriptive because it's what
Napoleon thought was going to happen.
He assumed they were going to win and set these people free.

2) It describes Ideology because it shows how somebody can get carried away when talking abiout something that means something to them. Such as winning a war.

3)Yes it does tell us about ordinary peoples beliefs. It shows that the people of Italy are easily
persuaded.

4)You can use this source to answer questions
about Napoleons views on the possible outcome of the battle.

5)You can’t use this source to answer questions
about what war Napoleon and his army are
planning to fight.

6)It will support their argument because historians would agree that this source does only state the positive.
1.) This source is descriptive. It is telling what actually happens which is the French war during Napoleon's birth.

2.) The source describes behavior because it telling about the birth of Napoleon. Also, it tells about the war of the Frenchmen soldiers.

3.) It tells about an action of Napoleon's birth and the French war. It is from the perspective of Napoleon later on in his life.

4.) Questions like "What events were happening when Napoleon was born?" can be answered using this source. The benefit of using this source is that this is an actual statement from Napoleon himself.

5.) Questions that include when he was born and who his parents were cannot be answered using this source. The limitations of this source are that it was stated by Napoleon and it could be an opinion.

6.) My interpretations would support other historians' arguments. The fact that Napoleon's quote is an opinion would strongly support their argument. 1) This is prescriptive because it's telling you would should happen between the soldiers on both sides

2) It describes behavior because it's what they want to do..win.

3) Yes it does tell us about their actions because they want to fight to the death. This shows us that they are determined to win no matter what.

4.) Questions like "What was asked of the soldiers for the French war that Napoleon led?" can be answered using this source. The benefit of using this source is that this is an actual statement from Napoleon himself.

5.) Questions that include when the war took place and how many soldiers were involved cannot be answered using this source. The limitations of this source are that it was stated by Napoleon and it could be an opinion.

6.) My interpretations would support other historians' arguments. The fact that Napoleon's quote is an opinion would strongly support their argument.
