Napoleon exhibit in Philly features more than 300 objects

"Almost two centuries after Napoleon Bonaparte met his Waterloo, all many people may know about him is that he was short. Except he wasn't, really.

The life of the Corsica-born military genius who rose from obscurity to command the armies of France and conquer much of Europe before ending his life in lonely exile is celebrated in "Napoleon," an exhibition at the National Constitution Center through Sept. 7."
