Visited the local Museum at Weidenberg near Bayreuth/Bavaria. It`s a Museum under private ownership dealing with the former garrison and military units at Bayreuth. While visiting I noticed 2 dioramas dealing with the american war of independence. First one dealing with the battle of Grmantown, May 18., 1778. Ansbach-Bayreuth infantry and Jäger fighting with troops under General Washington. Hessian troops are well known, but there where other soldiers from different earls who fight there. Ansbach-Bayreuth was an county reigned by Earl Alexander von Ansbach-Bayreuth who need money because of the so called Seven-Years-War.
