 MSN Encarta - Napoleonic Wars
The Napoleonic Wars were a continuation of the wars of the French Revolution (1789-1799), in which the Habsburgs and other dynastic rulers of Europe combined in an effort to overthrow the revolutionary government of France and restore the rule of the French monarchy.
The coalition also captured Milan; put an end to the Cisalpine Republic, which had been formed under French auspices in 1797; occupied Turin; and in general deprived the French of their previous victories in Italy.
The Coalition refused, and Napoleon planned a series of moves against Austria, and various German states in alliance with Austria, for the spring of 1800.

 Hal Draper: Third-Party Trends (1947)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
This term “third party” is used here with its generally understood sense in liberal, radical and also Marxist circles: a third party with some pretension to liberalism or progressivism within the framework of capitalist ideology – a liberal third capitalist party.
Or, we might say, no third party has ever been successful at the polls.” The only sense in which a third party has ever been successful is by forcing one of the old parties to adopt its program in order to defeat it.
A third party which arises under today’s conditions cannot be the same as a third party of the past – it must be based on the trade unions, if it is to be a serious movement.

 Correspondence   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Rather than attempt to merge the several like minded third parties into a single third party and face a quagmire of litigation and fallout, it would be much better to focus on providing a single Presidential Candidate that will be acceptable to all.
Some of the older third parties have the practice of holding their nominating conventions the year before the elections in order to provide enough time to face the difficult task of achieving ballot access.
A coalition of third parties need not mean that the eye, the hand, the head or the foot lose their identity, but only that they be individually respected as essential and allowed their proper place and honor as part of the whole.

Each third party brings something new to the table and a strength that possibly another one does not have, and together, we might be able to talk louder together than we can seperately about these issues like Eminent Domain.

On 8 March, 1798, he contracted a civil marriage with the widow of Alexandre de Beauharnais, Marie Joséphine Rose Tascher de la Pagerie, who was born in Martinique, in 1763, of a family originally belonging to the neighbourhood of Blois.
While the Third Coalition was forming between England and Russia, Bonaparte caused himself to be proclaimed hereditary emperor (30 April 18 May, 1804), and at once surrounded himself with a brilliant Court.
The stunning victories of Auerstädt, won by Davoust, and Jena, won by Napoleon (14 October, 1806), were followed by the entry of the French into Berlin, the king of Prussia's flight to Königsberg, and the erection of the Electorate of Saxony into a kingdom in alliance with Napoleon.
