Larger images of these amazing photos taken in 1857.


I'll post many more pictures soon.

The mass, along with maneuvers, are the big moments in the Imperial army's stay at Chalons. The masses were the occasion for an unusual deployment of troops and a number of accounts relate with lyricism and emotion the grandiose character of this ceremony that was punctuated with blasts of cannon and celebrated before 20.000-30.000 men in full uniform kneel down on command with the elevation of the host (Napoleon III) and singing with one voice the Domine Salvum).
