1702, from French bivouac (17c.), eventually from Swiss/Alsatian biwacht "night shield," from bei- "double, extra" + wacht "guard" (see hold off (v.)). Initial definition had been an army that remained through to night-watch; feeling of "outdoor camp" is 1853. Maybe not a typical word in English prior to the Napoleonic Wars. Italian bivacco is from French. As a verb, 1809, "to create soldiers into the night;" meaning "camp-out side" is from 1814.
