Stevenaar's battery added to the cacophony of sound to cover the retreat of Bijveld's guns. On the French left, Gauthier's men engaged a battalion of the 2nd Nassau that was sheltered in the Bossu Wood. On the other end of the field, two battalions of the 2nd Legere occupied Peraumont. Ney's assault, despite being tardy, is off to a good start.
Here is how things looked at the end of four turns, of one hour of historical time.
