Olga Hussars 8 July 1849 Hungarian Revolt

The Hungarian campaign opened in fact on 20 January (1 February) 1849, when two small columns-those of Major General Engelhardt (3 battalions, 2 sotnias, and 8 guns) and Colonel Skaryatin (4 battalions, 5 sotnias, and 8 guns)-crossed the Transylvanian border on Lüders' orders (he had previously received Nicholas I's approval).
