Course Description:

Unbeknownst to many, Napoleon Bonaparte’s family had deep ties to America. Five of Napoleon’s seven siblings and their children either lived in the United States or had children who did. In fact, Napoleon hoped to join them rather than be sent to exile on the island of St. Helena. One married a Baltimore belle and heiress. Another had a lake named for him. Still another helped to build an extended community. And, a grand-nephew held two offices in Teddy Roosevelt’s cabinet. Noted lecturer Susan McGough explores the motivations, settlement patterns, and achievements of the Bonapartes in their new American home.
