Franco-Prussian War / Max-Joseph-Order


Recommended Posts

Portrait of Prince Regent Luitpold of Bavaria (12 March 1821 – 12 December 1912) dedicated to Heinrich Reder, since 1871 Ritter von Reder (* 19 March 1824 in Mellrichstadt; † 17. February 1909 in Munich):

„In Erinnerung an den Tag von Ormes (Orleans) – 11. Oktober 1870. München den 1. März 1906 – dem Tag der 100jährigen Stiftungsfeier des Militär-Max-Josephs-Ordens. Luitpold P v Bayern“

In memory of the day of Ormes (Orleans) – 11 October 1870. Munich 1 March 1906 – the day of the 100 anniversary of the founding of the Military Order of Max Joseph. Luitpold P v Bayern“

During the battle of Orleans-Ormes on 11 October 1870 Reder received the order to place himself on the right flank with two platoons of the 8th battery of the 3rd Artillery Regiment in order to fight the enemy artillery. This 1200 meter galopping move happened under heavy fire through the deep trenches of the street “Les-Barres-Orleans”. He was awarded the Military Order of Max Joseph and thus the new title „Ritter von Reder“. In 1908 he became General Major.
