Tote bag Bicorne

This friendly tote bag carries not only the Emperor's Bicorne but also one of his most iconic quotes "Impossible is not French".
Often taken up by the French in a daring context, such as sport or entrepreneurship, this quote is also a symbol of honour and patriotic sentiment that makes it possible to motivate, and to recall that the duty of every Frenchman is to serve France with greatness at all times, in every place and even to the point of the ultimate sacrifice.

Description

We read these words in a letter from Napoleon to General Count 1 Le Marois, dated July 9, 1813.
After beating beautiful way the Russian and Prussian armies in May 1813 * Napoleon 1st obtained the armistice in June. This truce was a favorable moment to reorganize the army and ensure the replenishment of the units of food and equipment. In early July, he found that the food in Dresden stock reserved for horses of the Imperial Guard was virtually exhausted. Knowing the city of Magdeburg had substantial grain reserves, he asked the General Count Le Marois, governor of the city, to send part. But the latter replied that it was impossible. On July 9, Napoleon 1st replied by:
** It is not possible, do you write? This is not French **
What could have been later converted into "impossible is not French."
