A close-up on: Tilsit (July 1807)

The Grande Armée’s perfect victory over the Russian Army at Friedland had brought the Polish Campaign to an end. After an armistice signed on 20 June, the Czar Alexander I and the Emperor Napoleon I signed a peace treaty on 7 July, 1807, in the small town of Tilsit. Two days later a second treaty was signed with the Prussian king, Frederick William III.
