Fondest memory: The Battle of the Nations in Leipzig has been one of the first mass battles of modern times and marked the end of Napoleon's reign. In the mid-October days of 1813 more than 560,000 soldiers fought on the battlefield south of Leipzig and nearly 120,000 of them lost their lives here. To remember this battle the Monument of the Battle of the Nations was erected in Leipzig in 1913.
On October 18, 2003 the battle was re-fought by over 2000 actors from 19 countries in historical uniforms. What an event!
Unfortunately, the French and Saxon Confederation lost again against the Aliance under leadership of Russians, Austrians, Swedes and Prussians.
