The Szeklers, or Székelys were and are Hungarians who live in Transylvania. They played in important part in the border guard system of the Habsburg monarchy and Hungary. During the French and Napoleonic wars they were used widely as light troops. They were rough people, tough fighters. Here is the demonstration of their musketry drill according to the 1806-1807 regulations.
