French minister of war Lazare Carnot leads a victorious French Republican army during the Battle of Wattignies (15-16 October 1793), a significant engagement in the War of the First Coalition (1792-1797). Although Carnot played a vital role in resupplying the army, he would later overemphasize his own contribution to the victory.

Oil on canvas painting by Georges Moreau de Tours, 1893.
