Lawrence - Henry William Paget N070452 Featured Historic Print

Lawrence - Henry William Paget N070452

APSLEY HOUSE, London. "Henry William Paget, 1st Marquess of Anglesey" (1768-1854) by Sir Thomas LAWRENCE (1769-1830). WM 1474-1948. Despite personal differences with the Duke of Wellington, in 1815 General Paget commanded the Cavalry Corps. He successfully covered the withdrawal of the Allies following the Battle of Quatre Bras. At the Battle of Waterloo he led a spectacular cavalry charge that turned back D'Erlon's Corps from their assault. One of the last cannon shots fired that day hit Paget in the right leg, necessitating its amputation. According to anecdote he was close to Wellington when he was hit, exclaiming, "By God, sir, I've lost my leg!" To which Wellington replied, "By God, sir, so you have!"

'Scotland for Ever'; the charge of the Scots Greys at Waterloo, 18 June 1815. Artist: Unknown Featured Historic Print

'Scotland for Ever'; the charge of the Scots Greys at Waterloo, 18 June 1815. Artist: Unknown

'Scotland for Ever'; the charge of the Scots Greys at Waterloo, 18 June 1815. The attack by the Royal Scots Greys cavalry regiment on the French 45th infantry was immortalised in this famous painting of 1881 by Lady Elizabeth Butler (1846-1933). The wife of a general as well as a popular Victorian painter, she persuaded the commander of the regiment to reconstruct the charge so she could make the painting. Some military historians doubt that the action actually took the form of the spectacular headlong charge depicted in the picture. What is known however is that the Scots Greys overpursued the French infantry, became split into disorganised small groups, and suffered heavy casualties at the hands of French cavalry formations before they were able to regain the British lines
