Marengo

Marengo, a village three miles S.E. of Alessandria in eastern Piedmont, which was the scene of a great battle on June 14, 1800, between Bonaparte and the Austrians. Though generally claimed as one of Napoleon's greatest victories, it was the cavalry charge of Kellerman which really retrieved what had almost become a disaster.
