2nd Brigade, 13th Division, IV Corps, Army Du Nord, 1815

The other half of the 13th Division is the 2nd Brigade commanded by Général de Brigade Comte Francois-Alexandre Desprez and consisted of the line regiments of the 48th and 69th.

With the rest of the division, the 2nd brigade was involved with the fighting at Limal during the close of the Battle of Wavre, but I can't find much else out about them than that.

This is another typical French infantry brigade, with an Elan of 6 and Skirmishers. This makes them pretty solid in Blucher, and similar to a large amount of the French army.
