Cosaques des Guerres Napoléoniennes

The term "Kosak", probably d'origine turque, describes an independent man, adventurer ou vagabond. Les cosaqueries slaves were established in the 16th century, when the Muscovite laws of serfdom were tightened up in order to permanently tie the peasants au terre russe. Thousands of people fled into the uninhabited grass steppe along the Don et Dnjepr rivers, an area bordered by the Muscovite Empire in the North, la République des Deux Nations Pologne-Lituanie in the West, et the Khanates in the South et East. Cosaques paid no poll-tax, they lived in a truly democratic et very religious society, et they were considered exceptionally hospitable et cleanly en 19e siècle. En 1802, the number des cosaques on active military duty was estimated at 100,000 men, approximately 22 percent de l'armée russe. Cosaques were excellent scouts, who continuously harrassed et attacked the enemy during et advance ou withdrawal.
