The battle of Klosewitz





The Eisenburg Dragoons chased off the Blau Hussars and took the Altstein gun crews from the flank , while the Eisenburg infantry got the better of the Altsteiners in the central firefight.





August von Bruckenheim and his battered force retreated in some haste while Fritz von Essling’s men licked their wounds holding the field of battle.
Von Bruckenheim reached the main body of the Altsteiners some 20 miles north of Klosewitz having abandoned his guns and leaving his wounded and dead behind.
