  cavalry_Hungarian_village.jpg - Lodging of cavalry in a Hungarian Village, c. end of the 19th century. Painting by J. von Berres. The mayor of the village offers drink to the commander of a mounted squadron, while peasants look on with respect and admiration. Two babies behind the mayor express excitement, while two girls at the foot of a tree amuse themselves.  Among the inhabitants are numerous shepherds with their fleece jackets and staffs. Numerous regiments of cavalry were quartered outside of cities in villages, reflecting in part the concern for public order and in part the traditional place of the rural nobility as officers in the cavalry.
