Army of Italy.
Augereau, division general.
10,000 enemies storm the
Anghiari crossing: the Republican troops, numbering
only 1,500 men, harass them during the whole
day and capture 300 prisoners;
the next day, the enemy goes straight to Mantoue,
its rearguard is overtaken and they lose
2,000 prisoners of war
and 16 cannons.
General Provera, leading
6,000 men, attacks the
Saint-Georges suburb for the whole
day in vain, but, failing to enter,
shifts to la Favorite.
