Unfortunately you didn't tell us which regiment it was. How should anyone
be able to answer your question?

You even didn't tell us in which army your g-g-grandfather served.
The French Army? The Prussian Army? The Bavarian Army? The Army of
Wurttemberg? The Badenese Army? The Saxonian Army? The Hessian Army?

The English name Franco-Prussian War is misleading, since it was
actually a Franco-German war.

"The English name Franco-Prussian War is misleading, since it was actually a

The English naming is rather correct, because France declared war on Prussia only.
Nevertheless, Prussia was able, to engage some other German states (except Austria) on its side.
