As we approach the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo later this week, FutureLearners around the world have been sharing pictures of memorials and landmarks near them, which commemorate it and its two key figures – Wellington and Napoleon.
“One of our themes is the commemoration of Waterloo and its heroes. Memories of this war are all around us. There can be few towns in Britain that do not have a Duke of Wellington pub, or Waterloo Arms, or memorials or streets named after the occasion.”
Is there a memorial near you? Tell us about it in the comments below or on social media using #FLwellington. Want to know more about Waterloo? Join the free online course, “Wellington and the Battle of Waterloo,” now – it runs until Sunday 28 June.
