The Saxon Army in 1810: the Uniform Plates of Alexander Sauerweid

In 1810, the well-known artist Alexander Sauerweid drew a series of 30 plates on the army of the Kingdom of Saxony.These plates represents the most

important source for the evaluation of the uniforms and equipment after the army reform of 1810.

These drawings originally appeared on line in German by our partner, Napoleon Online and are used with the permission of the Landes- und Universitätsbibliothek Darmstadt. I would also like to thank Markus Gärtner. Please note that Markus Stein holds the copyright on all of these images.
