At the request of the Patriots, a French army invaded the Dutch Republic in September 1794. After a siege lasting more than two weeks, ’s-Hertogenbosch was captured on 10 October. The city was shelled –even at night –with cannons set up by the French. To keep out the attackers, a large area around the city was flooded.
