The Battle of Friedland

Two more photos from the upcoming Battle of Friedland.

North looking south.  On the left are the Russian forces -- Uvarov's cavalry and two infantry divisions.  On the right are the French forces -- lots of cavalry.  Heinrichsdorf is the town in the foreground.
Aerial view of Friedland.  The Alle River flows from the upper right, across the southern end of the town, and then northwards (toward the bottom of the photo) forming the eastern border of the town.  The millstream flows through the town; the millpond is center right.  The 1st (Guard) Division is there along with Bennigsen and Gortchakov.
