I admire all the uniforms of this era. I would have to pick the uniform of the Grenadiers A Cheval as my favorite,everytime I see a picture or a model of this I just have to stop and admire.

Rare portrait of Lasalle looking snappy in his dragoon uniform as General de Brigade of the 2nd Brigade of Dragoons. Dragoon uniforms always looked sharp indeed.
