The Napoleon Route from Ligny to Waterloo (1815)
Fleurus-Ligny is the place of Napoleon's last victory (against Blücher's Prussians in the Battle of Ligny) on the 16th of June, two days before Waterloo. The Naveau mill served as observatory to the French. The defeated Prussian army will not retreat to the east (as could have been expected), but rather move to Wavre, from where it will march to Plancenoit in support to Wellington. Wellington and Blücher will meet in the late evening of the 18th at the Belle-Alliance farm.
