Waterloo Veteran of the Month: Monsieur Schmit

Monsieur Schmit of the 2nd Mounted Chasseur Regiment (1813-14) wearing a floppy cap in May 1858. 

Some other portraits of Grognards (veterans) of the Grande Armée.

next episode: Marie Leonhard


  1. His entire uniform is quite impressive but that cap is quite amazing too. He appears to be a very proud man.

  2. The uniform, although impressive, pales in comparison to the countenance.
