Louis Marie Joseph Maximilien Caffarelli Du Falga, a French soldier, elder brother of the preceding, born at Falga, Feb. 13, 1756, died near St. Jean d'Acre, Syria, April 27, 1799. The eldest of ten children who became orphans at an early age, he divided equally among them an extensive inheritance, though he was legally entitled to half of it. He favored the revolution of 1789, and served as captain in the army on the Rhine; but having publicly expressed his disapproval of the execution of Louis XVI., he was confined to his country seat. Subsequently restored, he crossed the Rhine under Kleber near Dusseldorf in September, 1795, and lost his left leg near Creuz-nach. At Napoleon's request he assumed in September, 1798, the command of the engineer corps in Egypt, with the rank of brigadier general. Having, in the Syrian campaign, initiated the siege operations at St. Jean d'Acre, he was shot in the left arm, April 9, 1799, and died from fever setting in after amputation. His writings on mathematics and philosophy, chiefly in periodicals, and his labors in behalf of education led to his admission to the French academy.
