People
60153 France Napoleon Battle of Marengo 50mm ORIGINAL by Brenet 32.00
Bramsen 38, bronze, approx 50mm across, plain edge, no edge mark, original strike

The obverse portrait of First Consul Bonaparte was done by Brenet (signature on the truncation of the bust), but the border is signed by H. Auguste, suggesting that originally the medal had been intended to be smaller. The reverse bears a quotation attributed to the First Consul: THE FIRST CONSUL, COMMANDING THE ARMY OF RESERVE: REMEMBER, BOYS, THAT I AM ACCUSTOMED TO SLEEP ON THE BATTLEFIELD. Rose suggests that the general's sleeping habits could hardly be counted on to make his soldiers fight more fiercely. According to the Constitution of the Year Eight, the First Consul could not command troops; this was Napoleon's first violation of the constitution he had given the French the previous December. Before the battle it had been stated that General Berthier was commanding the army, so the medal had to clear that up.
