Yes, I know you can see it every day, hell, I've seen pictures of it (Couldn't go 'cause I was sick.). I meant the battle, which was crazy, to say the least. Lucky bastards.

Somosierra (30 November, 1808)

During his advance on Madrid, Napoleon Bonaparte found his progress blocked by General San Juan with 9000 troops and 16 cannon.

An initial move against the Spaniards failed to clear them and so the emperor, impatient at the delay, ordered the Polish cavalry against the strong defensive position.

The assault was a bloody one with two-thirds of the horsemen injured or killed, but the defenders were shaken by the incident and a combined infantry-cavalry attack threw them backwards.

Napoleon awarded sixteen crosses of the Legion of Honor to the Polish Light Horse stating, "You are worthy to belong to my old guard, honor to the bravest of the brave."
