Long Description:
Rytterfægtningen ved Aarhus fandt sted 31. maj 1849 som et led i Treårskrigen.Treårskrigen brød ud, som kulminationen på en årrække med dybe modsætningsforhold imellem hertugdømmerne Slesvig og Holsten, og det danske monarki. Kampen fandt sted nord for Aarhus hvor Stjernepladsen i dag findes. Fægtningen stod mellem de danske dragoner og preussiske husarer, og endte med dansk sejr.

I 1899 blev der rejst en mindesten for kampen. Oprindelig blev den placeret, hvor kampen havde fundet sted. Våbenbrødreforeningen nedlægger hvert år på dagen for slaget en krans på stedet.


The cavalry fencing took place the 31'st of May 1849 as part of the Three-Year-War between the Danes and the Germans. The Danes won the battle.

In 1899 this memorial was placed. Originally at the location of the battle just a few hundred meters North of it's current location. Every year on the date of the battle the Armed Brothers Society puts down a wreath.
