Trial of Napoleon Bonaparte

Description: The purpose of this trial is to judge the actions of Napoleon Bonaparte. Was he a great leader and patriot, or was he a power-hungry dictator? The year is 1815 and his last 100 days as a general have ended on the fields of Waterloo. What are we to do with this man? Our task is to examine his life and produce a verdict on the charge of "crimes against humanity", a charge later used against the Nazis after World War II. Be careful, because the Congress of Vienna - which is sponsoring this trial - may not be completely innocent! Standards 10.2.4, and 12.9.4
