Abstract

This thesis examines the legacy that Napoleon Bonaparte left on the world while rising to power from 1790 to 1814. The wake of Napoleon did not just affect France, but the ripples can be seen around the world. The aftermath of Napoleon can be seen in Haitian poverty, the Louisiana Purchase, and through the Napoleonic Code. This paper debunks Napoleon as only a military leader by using letters between Napoleon and Toussaint Louverture, The United states, and the rest of Europe bringing a new light to the topic of Napoleon.
