Re: The army in the Beiras
In Response To: The army in the Beiras ()

Hi Anthony,

After a more carefull look I read «Agada». I think it means the river «Agueda» near Ciudad Rodrigo. More I strongly suspect that the drawing represents the crossing of the Agueda by (part maybe) the allied army in January 1812, going to capture C. Rodrigo. Since Captain Paz drew is quarters in Barba de Puerco, in the Agueda, in January 1812, I think he was on the spot.

Best wishes!

Moisés
