The Battle of Sahagún (December 21, 1808) was a cavalry clash in which the 15th Light Dragoons (Hussars) defeated two regiments of French cavalry during the Corunna Campaign of the Peninsular War. One of the French regiments lost so heavily that it was subsequently disbanded. The action marked the final phase of the British army’s advance into the interior of Spain, before they began their harrowing retreat to the coast and ultimate evacuation by sea.
