Cleanup needed: subject to A7 and ProD[edit]

   Organization whose notability remains unstated; will be tagged tomorrow for Article paragraph-7 Speedy Deletion (probably carried out within an hour) if cause of claimed notability not stated today, and for Proposed deletion (probably carried out in 7 days) as still presumably non-notable if not fleshed out beyond a dictionary definition by the following day.
   The stub was created by me in the hope that the effort of the creator of the Dab Portuguese Legion will not be wasted, but in the event of the stub's deletion, the Dab will be cleaned up and tagged for General-purpose paragraph-6 Speedy Deletion (which will probably be carried out within an hour).

There was a Portuguese Legion that incorporated the Napoleonic Army, and even went to Russia. It included the Marquess of Alorna, Gomes Freire de Andrade and Francisco Joaquim Ferreira do Amaral. Mamikonian (talk) 17:03, 16 November 2010 (UTC)
   That's encouraging, and perhaps someone will put it to work -- especially if you can suggest an English-language source for reliable information on it.

   [Napoleon's Portuguese Legion (1808 - 1813) Historical Research Center] is not a reliable source, but its info suggests directions in looking for verification.

   Surely Battle of Witepsk took place near Vitebsk (Battle of Vitebsk) and is the one mentioned for Sergey Muravyov-Apostol's role. (No connection to Vitebsk–Orsha_Offensive#Vitebsk in the 20th century, which is presumably closely related to "battle of Vitebsk" mentioned in photo caption in Friedrich Gollwitzer.)
