Voltigeurs played an important role in Napoleon’s Army. He decreed that each Infantry Line and Light Infantry Regiment should select their finest marksmen and most agile soldiers and form them into special units that would provide one company in each battalion. These troops would act as “skirmishers” and “scouts” to help protect the main body as well as moving forward in loose order to be the “eyes and ears” of their commanders.

Special Uniform Note: Although wearing the same basic French Infantry uniform of the period Voltigeurs could be distinguished by their green and yellow epaulettes and collars as well as their black shako with the yellow stripe.
