Whilst this event was conceived and organised in a more "mainstream" and commercial goal, the groups of the Living-History Charter, along with other associations, conducted something that hadn't, up to that point, never been done in the history of Napoleonic re-enactement: The recreation of an 1-to-1 scale infantry battalion of the Napoleonic Wars!
The result of this historical experimentation was the creation of a campaign-worn battalion of 250 men divided into 6 platoons.
Each platoon was organised as the 1791 French Infantry regulations demanded, with each platoon having 1 platoon commander, 1 covering-NCO, 1 second section commander and 1 left-hand guide.
The battalion was lead by a mounted battalion commander along with 1 adjudant, 1 adjudant-major and a band of 6 drums.
