May 5 marks the 197th anniversary of his death. Because of his
failure, Europe is still a work-in-progress.

Napoleon was viewed with mixed feelings by young and old European
patriots--he had failed to form a European Federation, and had
abandoned republicanism for his imperial ambitions.

The young Giuseppe Cesare Abba was one of the original Thousand who
embarked from Quarto on 5 May 1860. The following is the 5 May entry
from his Diary "Da Quarto al Volturno."

"Strana coincidenza di date! Partiremo stasera. Chi fra quanto siamo
qui non ripensa che oggi è l'anniversario della morte di Napoleone?"
[Strange coincidence of dates! We embark this evening. Who among all
of us here does not remember that today is the anniversary of
Napoleon's death.]

May 5 is also the birthday of the Empress Eugenie.


Also the feast day of Our Lady of Europe.
