The battle of Waterloo was a battle within the Napoleonic Wars. The size of the armies were 23,000 British troops with 44,000 allied troops and 160 guns against 74,000 French troops and 250 guns. It was fought near Waterloo in present-day Belgium. This was important because Napoleon was defeated, and this defeat at Waterloo ended his rule as Emperor of the French. This agrees with DRMC because they were fighting for what they believed in.
