Treasures of Napoleon

We went to St. Louis last Friday and stayed through Saturday. One of the things that we did while we were there was visit the Treasures of Napoleon exhibit at the Missouri History Museum. It was fantastic. I was really impressed by the number and variety of the objects. We saw (among others) a chair from Napoleon's personal office, a foot cushion used at his coronation (with bees embroidered on it), a fabric sample from Versailles (also including a bee - Napoleon's personal symbol), and a signet ring.
