Alphonse Mucha. 1899 Light of Day

This is my ancestor Nicolas Thirion . He served with Napoleons Grande Armee. In 1812 he wrote: "Never had more beautiful cavalry been seen ! Never had the regiments reached such high effectives. And never had cavalry been so well mounted." In 1814 he joined the Netherlands Hussar Regt no 6 and fought with the Allies against the French at Quatre Bras (Waterloo campaign) in 1815. He is depicted here in the uniform of the 6th Hussars wearing the Order of William, the highest Dutch decoration.

This church is mentioned often in her diary. It's clock tower could be seen from the attic and she often talked about how the chiming of the church bells was comforting to her while she was hiding from the Nazis. The same bells still ring today. #Amsterdam #Netherlands #Holland #canals #beautiful #water #clouds #church #history
