Regular price $28.39 Sale price $25.81

This funny history T-shirt is inspired by the French marching song 'Le Chanson de l'Oignon' or 'The Song of the Onion.' According to legend, before the Battle of Marengo, Napoleon spotted some grenadiers rubbing an onion on their bread. "Very good," he said, "there is nothing better than an onion for marching on the road to glory." The quote on the T-shirt is from the third verse of the song "But no onions for the Austrians."

I am imperially impressed with Napoleonic Impressions. Not only with the thought and professionalism of the website but at the high street quality of the merchandise. It is the shop every history fan has been wishing for.

Napoleonic Impressions comes out with the best variety of smart, fun designs backed by solid historical knowledge. I wish all museum/historic site gift shops carried products like theirs!

I was so tickled to find a store that had unique items from Napoleonic history! Prices are reasonable and the shipping was incredibly fast - I ordered a Joachim Murat pendant and a Miguel de Alava mug and they came within a week of ordering. They are both excellent quality and would highly recommend!
