In what were probably some of the last shots fired in the Napoleonic wars, the town at the foot of the fortress Montmédy was stormed by 400 men of the 21. Infanterie-Regiment and 100 from Sachsen-Weimar during the early hours of 15 September 1815.
Their approach was spotted and several Prussians were wounded before some climbed the walls and opened the gates for the other troops.
