The Battle of Szydlowiec took place in the night of January 23/24, 1863, during the January Uprising. It began when Polish insurgents under Captain August Jasinski and Colonel Marian Langiewicz attacked the town of Szydlowiec (Congress Poland), where a garrison of the Imperial Russian Army stayed.
Szydlowiec was defended by an infantry regiment under Major Rudigier. Polish insurgents attacked the town three times, but after initial successes, they were forced to retreat, losing five men. The town eventually remained in Russian hands.
