Infantry formation

Diagram from Chandler's Art of Warfare in the Age of Marlborough showing a battalion deployed and French soldiers of the late 1670s. Useful for inspiration for Old School Wargaming. The company is the building block of Charge but for the 17th c battle the companies would join together in a battalion - this is why you see several flags in amongst the pikes.

For cavalry organisation I suggest you check out the excellent Dur Ecu's piece on cavalry.
