Alma 1854

Some close-ups from the painting by
Vernet Horace (1789-1863)
Interesting to see the French artillery wearing white trousers.

  1. I haven't seen this painting before. Thank you. My daughter and I are reading "Flashman at the Charge" together (cool kid) and we just watched the 1968 version of "Charge of the Light Brigade" where Alma is only seem through British eyes.
