Author Code: FAJB

Born: Nov. 12, 1785 - Conde sur l'Escaut, France

Bourgogne worked in his father's mercer business until he was twenty, at which time he joined the Velites, an army group attached to infantry regiments for the purpose of harassing the enemy. In 1806, he was posted to Poland and took part in battles against both the Prussians and Russians. In 1809, he fought at the battle of Essling where he was wounded twice. Over the next two years, he took part in campaigns in Austria, Portugal and Spain. In 1812, he was promoted to Sergeant and was in the detachment of Velites attached to Napoleon's Guard. He took part in the Russian campaign and wrote an extraordinarily clear memoir of the events of the tragic retreat of the French army. On his return he joined the 145th Line Regiment and was promoted to Second Lieutenant. During the battle of Dessau in Prussia in 1813 he was wounded and spent a year in captivity. In 1814 he returned home and married. In 1830, he rejoined the military and was made Adjutant in Valenciennes, where he remained for the next twenty years. In 1835, he wrote his Memoirs, however they were not published until 1898.
