Sovetsk in People's Lives

Napoleon Bonaparte: After winning the bloody Battle of Friedland here in 1807, the Russians decided to make a treaty with me. I met the commander of the Russian Empire, Tsar Alexander I of Russia in this town, and stayed here for a few days with him. When we first met, he opened with the line "I hate the English as much as you do." I quipped back, "Then we have already made peace." For the next few days, we got along remarkably well, dining together and making small talk and non-political conversation, and reviewing each other's armies, even handing out medals.
