German-Danish War: Austrian Artillery Battery (1864)
Austrian artillery battery in position during fighting on the island of F√ľnen. In the German-Danish War, Austria still fought alongside Prussia to push Denmark out of the northern provinces of Schleswig and Holstein. Subsequent friction between the two victors over these territories served as grounds for the Austro-Prussian War in 1866. Photographer unknown, 1864.
