Around 400 military enthusiasts with horses and field guns re-enacted the 1866 battle of Chlum u Sadov, north of Hradec Králové, on Saturday. The original battle pitted a 215,000 strong Austro-Saxon army against a slightly stronger Prussian army. The battle gave the Prussians a decisive win in the campaign and the leadership of German-speaking nations in Central Europe for the following decades. Participants in the re-enactment came from across Europe and as far away as the United States. The 1866 battle was the second biggest held on European soil during the 19th century.
