STATUES OF THE MARSHALS
Add to my
In 1959 Minister of Culture André Malraux offered to François Schleiter, Mayor of Verdun, a collection of 16 large statues representing Generals and Marshals of the First and Second Empires as well as the First World War. They had originally been intended to line the boulevards of Paris. Among the historical personages represented are Cambronne, Oudinot and Exelmans.
- The bastions dating from the 17th Century,
- the New Gate (under restoration) and its guardroom,
- the entry to the “Artillery” galleries leading to the powder magazines of the Underground Citadel.
