Notes:

**This officer's surname is often mis-spelled Lewis.

***Some sources say these two units were organized into a brigade under GM Luders. He is probably GM Nikolai Ivanovich Liders - colonel-in-chief of the Bryansk Musketeer Regiment (1800-1806).

****Some sources list GL Uvarov as commander of the Russian cavalry in GL Johann, Prinz zu Liechtenstein's V Column.
