Created during the army reorganizations of 1859-1860, this Regiment was Thuringian, garrisoning Erfurt prior to the war. The 71st served with distinction at three engagements during the campaign - the night battle at Podol, the Battle of Koniggratz and the Battle of Blumenau/Presburg. The account provides details of the Regiment's participation in each of these, including touches of personal detail. The depot battalion's role in the Battle of Langensalza against the Hanoverians, in which they fought hand-to-hand with enemy cavalry, is also recounted. Appendices detail the Regiment's casualties and medal recipients.
