Following the Battle of Waterloo, Johannes Horn, who drove Napoleon's coach (or 'dormeuse') tried to bring the vehicle to safety. He drove from La Belle Alliance to near Genappe where the Prussian cavalry captured the carriage and left Horn for dead. The aftermath of the battle is suggested by the scattered cannons, barrels and cannonballs.
