    • Richard Shelley - My 4th GG Father, Hans, and his brother, Claus, served on behalf of Denmark during the Napoleonic Wars. Hans was conscripted in 1802. He fought from 1808 - 1813 in the Schleswig Regiment Jägerkorps, and was wounded in action multiple times, awarded the St Helena Medal (He was commended for the Dannebrog Cross however he had lost this commendation certificate). Claus on the otherhand was conscripted in 1804 and served until 1805 when he was severely wounded which saw an end to his service. He recovered in Italy and remained there until his death in 1828.

1. "Invasion of Russia 1812" -> Wikipedia:de:Russlandfeldzug 1812 states it as beginning of the War of the Sixth Coalition, while Wikipedia:French invasion of Russia doesn't. Also the section "War of the Sixth Coalition 1812–1814" here implies, it's a part of it.

2. Shouldn't the Military and War project also manage this FSP?

3. Wikipedia:Category:Napoleonic_Wars is spelled Napoleonic, so I guess we should rename the category?

posted by Florian Straub
hi, is the category name correct? Shouldn't it read Napoleonic wars? Neapolitan would stand for events relating to Naples only.
posted by Danielle Liard
Good catch Danielle, It looks like the category is the problem. I'm not an expert on French, French history, Naples or Categories. So whatever you and the related projects come up with, I would go along with it.
