The exhibition project "On the Homeland, on Valor and Glory…" is dedicated to the Patriotic War of 1812 and foreign campaigns of the Russian army. The Patriotic War of 1812 was the largest event of the beginning of the 19th century not only for Russian, but also for world history. Russia became the liberator of Europe, its overseas campaigns brought unquestioned authority to the country in the international arena. But the main thing happened not on the battlefields, but in the hearts of people. The events of 1812 showed civic unity when the estate and multinational Russian society opposed the aggressor in defense of their country. This was the time of the birth of the national idea and unity.

In the photographs of Yevgeny Kuleshov, reconstruction of the battles of the Patriotic War of 1812 is recorded. Groups of soldiers, individual personalities, battle scenes in powder smoke make it possible to feel the severity and scale of the event, create an integral picture of the war that happened more than 200 years ago.
