Dear Ken; In the message I`m responding to, you mentioned that the names of soldiers who served in the Prussian army during the Franco-Prussian war might be published in "regimental histories." How does one go about getting access to them? Are they available here in America, or in Germany? If they are available here in America, are they available on the internet? Also, I have a question about a Prussian General named Bernhard Wilhelm August von Hiller. As I understand it, he commanded an infantry regiment prior to the Franco-Prussian war, and later, he commanded 2 infantry brigades. My question is, did he command either or both of these brigades *during* the Franco-Prussian war, and what were the names of these brigades? Thank you. Bill Arndts.
