August Maneuvers a Great Success!

“A new wig and an issue of hosiery for every man!” Herzog von Braunschweig-Woffenbuttel loudly proclaimed before the assembled troops at the conclusion of the August maneuvers near Schoppenstedt.

Later that evening in his salon, surrounded by the usual crowd of gathered Philosophes, the Herzog interrupted his musings on the flax seed to confirm that military pay stoppages to offset the new issue of wigs and hosiery will be a great boon to state manufacture.
