Penultimate French Infantry Brigade of I Corps

I'm getting so close to finishing I Corps now! This is the seventh base of eight, the 1st Brigade of 4th Infantry Division, commanded by Général de Brigade Chevalier Jean-Gaudens-Claude Pegot and consisting of two battalions of the 8th Line and two battalions of the 29th Line.


This unit was the lead division as the corps approached Quatre-Bras and was switched to Ligny on the 16th, where it remained whilst the rest of Corps marched back to Quatre-Bras. 


Another solid French Line unit, it was then involved in the fighting around Papelotte on Napoleon's right at Waterloo.



This is another base down and only two more (including the cavalry) to go, so stay tuned for more!

Thanks for reading!
