20 September, 1792

At this battle a mixture of French regulars and conscripts, under General Francois Kellerman, faced an army of Brunswick veterans.

Although twice the number of the enemy, the French were unsure of the loyalty of the pre-revolution trained troops and the courage of the newcomers.

The Duke of Brunswick's regulars, however, did not get to prove their superiority as excellent shelling from the highly skilled French artillery kept them at bay and eventually forced them from the field.

Casualities for both sides were about 300 men.
