By Noah Webster.
(mil.) The position of an army in the form of steps, or with one division more advanced than another. The word echelon is used also in reference to nautical manceuvres. When a fleet is in echelon it presents a wedge-form to the enemy, so that the bow-guns and broadsides of the several ships can mutually defend each other.
