Nieder-Markersdorf was occupied by the 21st and 34th Hunters Regiments, and the 4th and 20th Hunters Regiments, as well as the aforementioned Brigade of the 5th Division, were assigned to the Somtieu; only after a persistent battle did the enemy become master of one half of the village.
One could still notice significant columns that turned from Ober-Markersdorf against Pfaffendorf. G. Nikitin sent them some bullets from his battery near the end of Nider-Markersdorf. One of them, 50 steps behind Napoleon, reached G. Düroe and Kirgener. The 20th Hunter Regiment remained in Nieder-Markersdorf, the 4th and 34th Hunters Regiment occupied Pfaffendorf, the 21st with the Regiment Reval Holtendorf. Behind them, the 2nd Corps sat next to the corps of Gortschakof and St. Priest, which had already been set up on the front of the country corps. More back stood the cavalry of the Arriergarde.
It was about 7 o’clock in the evening, when the 2nd Corps arrived here and about 10 o’clock in the morning the battle had begun at Reichenbach. (Excerpt from The History of the Campaign of 1813 by Georg Wilhelm von Hofmann 1838 p. 77)
