In 1803 the Danish king revoked a deal with the people from Lærdal, that exempted the men from military service as long as they maintained the roads over the mountains. This the Lærdølingene didn’t like so the rebelled, in the end the leaders ended up executed. 5 years later Lærdalske lette infanterikompani marched 320km over the mountains in winter to get to the Swedish border, they took part in the battle of Trangen, a glorious victory over the Swedes.08/12/2019 at 14:02 #127775MikeKeymaster08/12/2019 at 14:27 #127777
