To the Field of Waterloo: The First Battlefield Tourists 1815-1816

From the very first day after the battle there have been tourists to the battlefield of Waterloo. This is the story of the experience of the early visitors as recounted by six of the first Waterloo tourists – the Poet Laureate Robert Southey, journalist John Scott, author and advocate James Simson, schoolmaster John Evans, an adventurous young gentleman called Newman Smith and novelist and travel writer Charlotte A. Eaton. Their descriptions are moving, shocking – even funny – and give a vivid account of the aftermath of the battle that changed 19th century Europe for ever.
