Re: you mean it is not dead yet...just let it go..

Friends, some small elaborations/interpretations:

* The untitled segment in Mémoires of Massena (VI/415f) is the section of Broussier's journal that deals with 6 July.

* ORBAT on 6 July
Broussier = 8 battalions
9e Ligne (three battalions)
84e Ligne (three battalions)
92e Ligne (only two of its battalions)

Lamarque = 12 battalions
18e Léger (two battalions)
13e Ligne (three battalions)
23rd Ligne (two battalions)
29e Ligne (three battalions)
92e Ligne (only two battalions--these two were attached, we do not know which brigade)

Seras (Moreau commanding) = 11 battalions
112e Ligne (three battalions-- note that this regt was attached to Seras, not an original or "organic" regt to the division)
IV/35e Ligne
53e Ligne (three battalions)
IV/42/Ligne
106e Ligne (three battalions)

Col. Penne's report: difficult to interpret precisely as he could be referring to either portion of the 92e Ligne, that is to either Broussier's or to Lamarque's assuming one or both formed the trail unit in its respective divisional formation. Moreover, as we do not when Seras/Moreau marched up close behind MacD's formation, we do not know that the 92e was not deployed en bataille at that moment; that is, the 92e may have started the attack in column, but if Seras/Moreau did not arrive until later in the engagement--as seems likely/probable--it seems entirely possible that the 92e was en bataille when Col. Penne and his men came upon them.

Post-Wagram: Lamarque did not give up any units other than the two battalions of 92e Ligne that returned to Broussier. Lamarque gained several as Seras's division was broken up and split among other divisions of the Army of Italy as below.

Division: GD Lamarque
1st Brigade: GB Moreau
18th Léger (III, IV)
13th Ligne
23rd Ligne (III, IV)
2nd Brigade: GB Huard
29th Ligne
IV/35th Ligne
53rd Ligne

Division: GD Pachtod
1st Brigade: GB Abbé
8th Léger (III, IV)
1st Ligne
106th Ligne
2nd Brigade: GB Pastol
52nd Ligne
112th Ligne

IV/42nd went to army HQ
