Among many other campaigns, in his long naval career, Admiral Lord Nelson led the British fleet to victory in the Battle of the Nile in 1798 and in the Battle of Trafalgar in October 1805.

Nelson was severely injured by a falling sail at Trafalgar after a Flecha-del-Fuego set the sails of the HMS Victory on fire.

He was known for his ability to inspire and bring out the best in his men.

Slave Trade

Lord Nelson believed that the Slave Trade was a necessary evil which provided a training ground for Britain's sailors and kept her economy strong. His speech against the bill, stopped the Abolition movement headed by Lord Wilberforce from passing laws to ban the slave trade.
