The Battle of Waterloo which ended the twenty-three years' war of the first French Revolution. It was a period of violence, of tumult, of unrestingly destructive energy-a period throughout which the wealth of nations was scattered like sand, and the blood of nations lavished like water. The Battle of Waterloo quelled Napoleon Bonaparte whose genius and ambition had so long disturbed and desolated the world, deserves to be regarded by us as one of the greatest victories.
