Everyone has heard of the Battle of Waterloo in 1815, sometimes also called the Battle of Mont-Saint-Jean or La Belle Alliance, but not many people know that this area had seen a previous clash of the French and Coalition armies in July 1794.

In that year, following an ultimately minor victory at the Battle of Fleurus, the French army under General Jourdan of the Sambre-et-Meuse continued the fight to prevent the First Coalition forces (from Austria, Holland and England) from marching on Paris.

Faced with disciplined, well-provisioned armies, the “sans-culottes” proved their courage and daring by forcing back the enemy, not only succeeding in putting them to flight, but also in seizing Brussels
