Battle of Valmy

Battle of Valmy

September 20th, 1792

Background: Although little more than a skirmish during the French Revolutionary Wars, Valmy was one of history's decisive battles; the Prussian march on Paris to restore the French monarchy was halted and the French Revolution saved. The Prussians and their allies withdrew, allowing the French to renew their invasion of the Austrian Netherlands.

Battle of Valmy

Two small French armies opposed the Prussian advance: the Army of the North, led by General Charles Dumouriez, and the Army of the Center, under the command of General François Kellermann. In the manner of 18th Century warfare, the two national sides maneuvered against each other until Dumouriez placed his troops against the Prussian line of march. He was joined by Kellermann, who advanced beyond Dumouriez's Army of the North to take up a position on high ground around the village of Valmy, directly in front of the Prussians. Kellermann set up his command post by a windmill at the center of the French line. The French forces were a combination of enthusiastic but ill-trained volunteers and experienced regulars from the old royal army, supported by the technically proficient French artillery.

Battle of Valmy

Scenario: The Duke of Brunswick has been ordered with the aide of the Austrians to march on Paris. General Dumouriez with the aide of General Kellerman's Armee du Centre was sent to stop the Prussians and save Paris. The battlelines are formed and the battle begins at the 8AM Day Segment.
