When Haarlem sided with the Dutch Revolt in 1572, the Spanish lay siege to the city. In May 1573, the rebels attempted to recapture the Haarlemmermeer, which was a major supply channel to the city. They were defeated by a fleet of Spanish and Amsterdam ships (Amsterdam was then still loyal to Spain). Haarlem was ultimately forced to surrender to the Spanish.
