Cuirassier, 2nd Regiment, Froeschwiller, 6 August 1870
Part of Bonnemains' 2nd Reserve Cavalry Division, the regiment suffered heavy casualties in its charges against unbroken German infantry. The tunic worn is the 1859 model, whose skirts were shortened in 1868. Unlike much of the Line Cavalry, the Cuirassiers wore a standardized uniform by the outbreak of war.
