please confirm: (

The Battle of Camarón occurred on 30 April 1863, between the French Foreign Legion and the Mexican army. In this battle the French Foreign Legion made its legend. A small infantry patrol led by Captain Jean Danjou, Lt Maudet and Lt Vilain, numbering 62 soldiers and 3 officers was attacked and besieged by a force that may have eventually reached 2,000 Mexican infantry and cavalry, and was forced to make a defensive stand at the nearby Hacienda Camarón, in Camarón de Tejeda, Veracruz, Mexico.

ps: if you want to link a topic with the date in the calendar you should read this 'how-to': (

I entered this date in the calendar so it's ok now  :salute:

to keep it simple: you should open an event in the calendar and choose 'open a topic' in the correct board (this one). That way a new topic gets opened here and you can modify it.
