Napoleon would probably have been welcomed in the USA, back in 1815, because of our animosity with the hated British. Remember we had just concluded the War of 1812 on February 18, 1815. Plus, many American politicians and aristocrats were Francophiles (people who are fond of or greatly admires France or the French). To admire the British is to risk being branded a traitorous Tory ...or insane.
Napoleon could have taught at our military academies like West Point or the Virginia Military Institute (once it got built in 1839). He could instruct on strategy and logistics (not so much on naval stuff) as he was able to move his Grande Armée around so effectively.
AND THEN WAR WITH CANADA!
