Unseen photos of “military exercises” during the Qajar era

In 1795, Agha Mohammad Khan marched from capital to Tiflis with his cavalry in 15 days, or about eleven farsangs per day. When on the march, the troops lived almost entirely at the expense of the inhabitants of the districts through which they were traveling. The army stewards looked after the military supplies where the troops were stationed, and the value of the supplies was expected to be reduced by the revenue from the local population, but the reduction was seldom made, and the districts suffered as if they had been occupied by The enemy force.
