Does anyone have a link to a site that gives Keinmayer's Corp's orbat?

Cheers

If you are referring to the 2nd reserve corps try this:

I expect from the title Scrumpy is looking for the XI corps which was set up after Aspern-Essling. The 2nd Reserve Corps, which Keinmayer had commanded, had been merged with the 1st Reserve Corp before Aspern-Essling (Keinmayer only commanded a Division in the reserve at that battle), but after the battle Keinmayer was given the command of the newly created XI corps, which engaged the French and Westphalians in Saxony. This was made up, as I understand, from the Austrian forces left in Bohemia (i.e. not part of the VII corps which advanced in to Poland with Archduke Ferdinand), the forces that raided into Saxony and Bavaria, reinforced by elements of the Army of the Danube and the Brunswick and Hessian troops. It wasn't large consisting of perhaps 14,000 Austrians plus the Brunswickers and Hessians.

Unfortunately, the site which Terry linked doesn't have an order of battle for the XI corp that I can see. It is, nevetheless, a tremendously useful source for Napoleonic orders of battle and for 1809 has details of almost every other significant Austrian force, including the VII corps that invaded the Duchy of Warsaw (which seems to be very close to the 1809 Army of Bohemia list). I'm not aware of any on-line (or, in deed, any printed) order of battle for the XI corps, which is, perhaps, understandable given it was an ad-hoc formation in a secondary theatre. The only thing I'd add is that if using the 1809 Army of Bohemia list as the basis for an army representing the XI corps, I'd be surprised if it included many or any Cuirassiers considering the source of its troops.

I just realised that Terry's link is for just one of the OoBs in the collection. I've added a link below to a PDF which lists all the OoBs they have available and has links to the individual PDFs. The document can take a couple of minutes to display on my computer and you need to scroll down a few pages to get to the Napoleonic OoBs. I've never got the search function to work properly, a combination of old age and stupidity I expect. However, the IDs for each file are linked to the year of the OoB. So 1809 OoBs all begin 809.... etc...

Wow - what a great resource - and thanks to Mr. Nafziger for donating his collection. I can remember going to conventions and buying oob from him years ago.

I didn't see that oob either. Looks like there are 1809 oob scattered throughout the document through. I did get the search function to work - just use the PDF search on the side bar and input "1809"

I downloaded the finding aid from: http://cgsc.contentdm.oclc.org/cdm/ref/ ... 11/id/1277
I can then just use the pdf search function to locate the required document.
