My, my, at Waterloo Napoleon did surrender - AbbaContrary to popular belief, the Battle of Waterloo took place in Belgium and not in England.
The battle took place back on June 18th, 1815 and if most don't know who won, they at least know who lost.
Every year the battle is celebrated but on special years, the Belgians go crazy and dress up in Napoleonic military uniforms, invite other military role players from the period and start another war. Its quite a fascinating sight and a real treat for military history buffs as well as photographers.
