Napoleon

Part 1
Episode 1 The History Channel October 8, 2017

From lowly Corsican army officer to first consul of France, this episode charts the rise of Napoleon to leader of the French nation in the late 1790s. It tells of Napoleon's military triumphs in Italy, Egypt and on the streets of Paris, his marriage to Josephine Beauharnais and leadership of the military coup that swept him into power. It shares in his ambition as an army officer, his highly progressive modernisation of the country during the early years of his dictatorship, but also his acute sensitivity, a personality trait that in later years would prove to be an Achilles heel to his power.

Boohoo Boone asks Omri what will happen when they return home, hoping they will have moved forward in time. Little Bear tells Omri and Patrick about the traditional rite of passage in Iroquois culture and of the concept of harmony with the world. Before leaving, Little Bear asks Omri of the plight of the Onondaga people, and Omri tells him the truth. The Onondaga are great, but it is not always great for their people.
