Battle of Novara (1849)

Today is the anniversary of this Austrian victory over the Piedmontese. Wiki here
Photos of a reenactment here
Link to an Italian reenactment group that recreates the period.
The attached video is only 13 hours old so I guess they reenacted this battle at the weekend. Last years here


  1. Nice looking group AND they get cancan dancers!


  2. Good Lord that blog's theme music is annoying if you click around their pages. You can turn it off but it starts again!

    But it is a nice looking group doing an era that's obscure to most people in the States.

    Thanks again for the link to the site.
