Transcript of Napoleon and Advertising

Primary Source 1) I would say this picture is prescriptive. It is saying and
showing that he is a king or somebody that the people look up to as someone who rules the country.
2) On this picture, it describes doesn't really show
a ideology because it is a picture. It describes the behavior
because it is kind of hsowing hwat kind of ruler he was.
In the picture, if you didn't know anything about Napoleon
then you would probably think the Country looked up to him.
This picture makes him seem loyal and respectable.
3)It is talking about the elite in this photo. If you just look at it you will be able to tell he is the ruler. It kinda looks like he is getting ready for battle.
4) The historical questions I would answer would probably be like "What is he doing?" "Are they getting ready for battle?" or "Was he a good man?" The benefits are you can kind of feel like you relate to them just by looking at the picture.
5) It can't answer how long ago it was, or why they would take a picture of him like that. The limitations is that you don't get a lot of information to do a primary source on.
6) This source supports a challenge because everyone knew he was an awful ruler. For him to sit up there like that, no way.

1. Is it prescriptive--telling you what people thought should happen--or descriptive--telling you what people thought did happen?
It is prescriptive because it shows how the people saw Napoleon. They saw him as a mighty person that coulkdn't be touched by anyone, and that he was very high on he's horse with his power. They considered him god like, even though they didnt really like him and he was considered the anti-christ.
2. Does it describe ideology and/or behavior?
It describes ideology because once again it was how the people saw him. They saw him as god like and untouchable. He was a feared man, even though he wasn't a good guy. People did what he said because that is what they believed they should do.
3. Does it tell you about the beliefs/actions of the elite, or of "ordinary" people? From whose perspective?
It shows you kind of both becuase it shows how the ordinary people saw him and how the elite people saw him. They saw him as a feared and powerful man. He could rein on a high horse because he had power.
4. What historical questions can you answer using this source? What are the benefits of using this kind of source?
Some benefits of this source is that it shows you how the people looked at him, and how they saw him as a leader. Feared but respected is what you get out of this source. Thats what it shows in the painting. Also it tells who painted the picture of him and the title of it, so that is 2 more questions you can answer about this source.
5. What questions can this source NOT help you answer? What are the limitations of this type of source?
You can tell a lot from this source but it wouldn't help you if you didn't hard core facts. Like all the details about the war he was in or really any details about himself. This sources limitations are to show you how he was respected and feared. Also to tell you that he was a strong leadering in battle. But that is about it.
6. If we have read other historians' interpretations of this source or sources like this one, how does your analysis fit with theirs? In your opinion, does this source support or challenge their argument?
I think my analysis fits well with other historians' interpectations. In my opinion my view of this source would support theirs. 1) I think this photo is prescriptive. It is showing that the people wanted him to be ruler (at the time) and that they respected him.
2) It is ideology I believe because once again the people thought of him as their ruler. It shows behavior because it is showing him as if he were respectful.
3) This picture is probably most definity an elite. It is about them in battle, kind of, and the people look up to him.
4) "Was he the ruler?" "Was he a great and mighty king?" Those are a few of the question I'm sure anyone would ask if they saw this picture. The benefits are that you can sort of get an idea of what all is going on.
5)"Why are they taking this picture?" "Why was he the king?" Those are a few of the questions I'm sure anybody would ask about this picture. The limitations of this source is that you can't really answer a lot of these questions very good because you don't know much information.
6) In my opinion this source supports that he is the ruler. Not anyone gets pictures like these, mainly kings. 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 1.descriptive because by telling the little children what happens when you misbehave!
2.it describes behavior because it tells the kind of ppl they are! being harsh on kids
3. it tells me about ordinary children being scared of adults that are under napoleon
4.why would the mothers tell the children to say prayers at night !
5.why is napoleon also named boney?Why must they scare people like that?
6.my opinion is that people do fear him, and fear that he may actually come into there homes and hurt them! 1.this picture is descriptive, because its a drawing about what napoleon looked like. they thought he was rich and has alot of jewels and goods.
2.i think this picture describes behavior, only because in this picture he looks like a snob and looks down to people!
3.this picture tells you about him being elite. it shows that he has power to get what he wants easily
4.historical questions i could answer with this source is "how much money does he have instead of using peoples tax money?"
5."why does he have all that fur on?""who made him king in the first place?"... those are questions that i think this source cant answer.the limitaions of this source is that it doesnt really show that he has loyal men or a right hand man!
6.my opinion is that if he has all that clothing and jewels on, i think you have to be either taking money, or people just really like you, but in this case...nobody likes Napoleon!
