Battle of Baylen, 18 July 1808
The situation around Baylen on 18 July. Even at this point, the French defeat was by no means certain - Dupont could have attacked Castanos across the Guadalquiver with a good chance of success, leaving Reding isolated at Baylen. Instead, Dupont decided to retreat towards Baylen and La Carolina, but delayed the move until the night.
