WOW! This has got to be a new best favorite! Ready for your History lesson for the day? Well, the ARC DE TRIOMPHE was commissioned in 1806 by Napoleon, shortly after his victory at Austerlitz but it was not finished until 1836. There are four huge relief sculptures at the bases of the four pillars. These commemorate "THE TRIUMPH OF 1810; RESISTANCE, PEACE AND THE DEPARTURE OF THE VOLUNTEERS (or LA MARSEILLAISE). Engraved around the top of the arch are the names of the major victories won during the Revolutionary and Napoleonic periods. The names of 558 generals are found on the inside wall. Generals whose names are underlined died in action. Beneath the Arch is the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and the eternal flame commemorating the dead of the two world wars. The Arc de Triomphe is an imposing triumphal arch in Paris standing on an elevation at the end of the Avenue des Champs Elysees and in the center of the Place de l'Etoile, which is formed by the intersection of 12 radiating avenues. L Goust, J.N. Huyot, and G.A. Blouet completed the original construction, which was begun in 1806 by J.F. Chalgrin, after his death successively. The arch was completed in 1836 and measures 164 feet high, 148 ft wide and 72 feet deep.
