Hello everyone,

In which battles would the French cavalry have fought in cape and overcoat?

The battle of Eylau, retreat from Moscow, the 1814 winter campaign in France for example.

Possibly never; if the colonel thought that this clothing impedes the sword arm it would be strictly on the march. I have memories that this applied at the assault on the Alamo.See also my answer regarding shako covers and pelisses.
