“On…Napoleonshöhe*…Napoleon delivered [a] stirring declaration…*Today it can be found around the back of the McDonald’s restaurant car park.” (Updated)

Update (20170510)

I edited the quote from “On a hillside*” to “On…Napoleonshöhe*…”

Here is the passage from which the quote is taken:

That same day, Napoleon had launched a sustained offensive along a wide front in a series of hamlets south of the Danube, 20 miles east of Ingolstadt. He had been up at 3 a.m., sending orders to Lefebvre, Masséna and Vandamme, and by 6.30 he, Lannes and Bessières were riding for Abensberg. On a hillside later called the Napoleonshöhe* outside the town, Napoleon delivered this stirring declaration to the officers of the Bavarian corps, translated for him by Crown Prince Ludwig of Bavaria and published as an Order of the Day:

Bavarian soldiers! I do not come to you as a French emperor, but as Protector of your        country and the Confederation of the Rhine. Today you will fight alone against the              Austrians.

*Today it can be found around the back of the McDonald’s restaurant car park.
