World History

- Christmas Day first becomes a public holiday on an international scale.

- Napoleon and his French army (40,000 men)—not including the field artillery and baggage trains—(35,000 light artillery and infantry, 5,000 cavalry) begins crossing the Alps. He selects the shortest route through the Great St. Benard Pass.
