Re: QUERY: Bach Hussars

From Charles Ingrao:

I appreciate Katalin Straner's quick response to my request. The "Hussars" in question were Habsburg officials charged with administering the Austrian empire during the period of "neo-absolutism" (1851-1861) when Emperor Francis Joseph and his ministers governed without either a constitution or representative institutions. I had imagined a plethora of cartoons lampooning them and their uniforms, which included swords and a hussar's cloak. (With censorship, my sense is that the best vignettes would have been published in places like Berlin or Paris.)
