“Trafalgar Monument, Battle of Trafalgar (1805). During the early part of the Napoleonic wars, England’s successes were gained by her superior navy under the command of the most brilliant naval officer of the time, Lord Nelson. Nelson’s last victory was won near Cape Trafalgar, off the coast of Spain, where he met the combined fleets of France and Spain. It was on the eve of this engagement that he sent to the vessels of the fleet the famous message, ‘England expects every man to do his duty.’ most of the enemies’ ships were captured or sunk, and the victory gave England the control of the sea, but cost the life of her brave commander, who fell at the moment of victory."—Colby, 1899
