single regiment.

On 7 July the 1st Battalion attacked hose Chancellor and in turn lost its leader.

   On August 20, the regiment is responsible for the attack to relieve the city. In front of them four
regiments enemies are entrenched. All objectives set for the regiment are met, and they push over
three kilometers into the enemy line.. It was during this feat of arms the regiment wins its sixth Croix

What a piece of work is man! How noble in reason! how infinite in faculties! how like an angel! in apprehension, how like a god, beauty of the world! the paragon of animals! And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me; no, nor woman neither.
