The first free recruitment for the Austrian army happened in 1727 and was received with a riot from the part of the town’s population. But in 1742 the first parade of the Transylvanian recruiters from the Austrian army took place in Piaţa Mare. The casern of regiment 90 was built in 1807 and demolished in 1987. In 1815 the Saxon battalion of mountain gunners that participated within the Austrian army to the campaigns against Napoleon, came back to Sibiu.
