Sir John Moore monument CC97_01091

Sir John Moore Monument, St Pauls Cathedral, London. A view of the monument by John Bacon (1815) on the south wall of the South Transept to Sir John Moore. General Sir John Moore commanded British forces in Spain in 1808-09. On the advance of 200, 000 enemy troops, Moore drew the French northwards towards his embarkation point in Galicia. A rearguard action at the Battle of Corunna bought breathing space to embark the British forces, but resulted in Moores death in battle. This heroic death was celebrated in poetry by Charles Wolfe. Moore was also honoured by the French with a monument over his grave at La Coruna. Photographed by York and Son between 1870-1900

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the majestic Sir John Moore Monument, located in the enchanting St Paul's Cathedral in London. Crafted by the talented sculptor John Bacon in 1815, this monument pays tribute to General Sir John Moore, a valiant British commander who led forces during the Napoleonic Wars in Spain from 1808-09. In an extraordinary display of strategic brilliance, Moore skillfully maneuvered his troops and drew a staggering enemy force of 200,000 northwards towards Galicia. This audacious move provided precious time for the British forces to embark safely but tragically resulted in Moore's untimely death on the battlefield during the Battle of Corunna. Moore's heroic sacrifice was immortalized through Charles Wolfe's poignant poetry and even honored by his French adversaries with a monument at his grave site in La Coruna. The photograph itself was expertly captured between 1870-1900 by York and Son, showcasing their remarkable talent for preserving historical moments. As we gaze upon this image, we are reminded of both the courage displayed by General Sir John Moore and his enduring legacy as one of Britain's most revered military figures. This print serves as a powerful testament to history and invites us to reflect upon those who have selflessly fought for our freedom.
