This is the second episode of Napoleon's flight after the defeat at Waterloo on June 18, 1815. We follow his travel from a remote country town in Northern France up to Paris where he takes shelter in the castle beonging to his ex-wide Josephine de Beauharneais. Maybe the Paris government will re-instate him and ask him to continue the fight against the European Allied Forces, that are at the door of Paris. But this is not to be and here, in the castle of Malmaison, Napoleon and company decide to escape to the United States, which it was not to be.
