Campagne de France (An Oil Selection)

Campaign of France
1864, Oil on Canvas
Jean-Louis-Ernest Meissonier
 

"God and the soldier
All men adore
In time of trouble,
And no more;
For when war is over
And all things righted,
God is neglected -
The old soldier slighted."

 

--Written on a sentry box at Prince Edward's Gate, Gibralter
