DENNEWITZ, a village of Germany, in the Prussian province of Brandenburg, near Jiiterbog, 40 m. S.W. from Berlin. It is memorable as the scene of a decisive battle on the 6th of September 1813, in which Marshal Ney, with an army of 58,000 French, Saxons and Poles, was defeated with great loss by 50,000 Prussians under Generals Billow (afterwards Count Billow of Dennewitz) and Tauentzien. The site of the battle is marked by an iron obelisk.
