Almost daily battles were fought in the Austrian Netherlands during the spring of 1794 as the French armies, filled up with conscripts, mounted assaults against the First Coalition forces. Three times the French were turned back at Grandreng on 13 May, Erquelinnes on 24 May and Gosselies on 3 June. After arriving with large reinforcements on 4 June, Jourdan assumed control of the French effort. On 12 June, the French crossed the Sambre and laid siege to Charleroi for the second time. On the 16th, the Prince of Orange attacked, forcing the French to lift the siege and withdraw south of the Sambre. The final showdown along the Sambre would come at the Battle of Fleurus on 26 June 1794.
