La Garde a Feu! The Consular Guard at Marengo

Arms of Honor and Brevets of Honor Awarded to the Consular Guard for Marengo

By Kevin Kiley

The following listing, taken from the French National Archives, clearly lists the personnel from the Consular Guard who distinguished themselves at the Battle of Marengo on 14 June 1800.  The list was submitted by Bessiers to Lannes, and was forwarded to the First Consul for action by Carnot, who was then the Minister of War.  The list is dated 6 July 1800 and was forwarded to Napoleon on 18 July 1800.  The named officers and men of the Consular Guard were subsequently awarded the following:
