SKU: SGEN-04 Category:


Heinrich von Breymann (died in 1777) was a German Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel lieutenant colonel who fought as an officer in the service of Great Britain during the American Revolutionary War. He was commander of the Breymann Grenadiers, a Brunswick battalion hired into British service, and served under the command of John Burgoyne. During the Battles of Saratoga, Breymann’s unit was driven behind a redoubt, where he grew frustrated at the poor performance of his men, allegedly attacking four with his saber. It is possible that he was killed by “friendly fire”.
