Do you have a Napoleon 1812 story?
Roots-Key, the journal of JGSLA is collecting information about the
Napoleon's Russian Campaign of 1812. We hope to be able to plot the
route >from Kovno to Moscow with your stories. Napoleon's army covered
a broad front stretched north and south through Riga, Kovno, Vilna,
Svensionys, Vitebsk, Mogilev and Minsk, bordered by the Pripet Marshes
on the south.... crossing the Nieman, the Dneiper, and the Berezino
Rivers....with major battles = in Smolensk, Borisov and Borodino.
Every village and villager was affected. Construction, demolition,
pillage, disease and death threatened every shtetl and town in
If you have a story, no matter how insignificant or obscure it sounds,
we would like to hear it. If you would like to participate in this JGSLA
project, please contact me personslly: firstname.lastname@example.org
