Barsur Seine

Bar-sur-Seine, a town in the department of Aube, France, 18 miles from Troyes. In the Middle Ages it was a place of wealth and importance, but it suffered greatly in the wars of religion. It is now insignificant, though some trade is done in wool, grain, wine, and brandy. A battle was fought here in 1814 between the Allies and the Napoleonic forces.
