Russia France Napoleonic General Remains

A participant dressed in historical uniforms attends a ceremony to repatriate the discovered remains of Charles-Etienne Gudin, one of the most prominent French generals of the Napoleonic era who died during the 1812 Russian campaign, at the Vnukovo-3 airport in Moscow, Russia. On 2019, a team of Russian and French archaeologists unearthed a coffin in the Russian city of Smolensk some 250 miles from Moscow with remains believed to be General Gudin. A DNA analysis proved the hypothesis correct.
