Pont-Noyelles was the scene of one of the battles of the Franco-Prussian War. On the 23 and 24 December 1870, French troops, led by Colonel Louis Faidherbe routed German forces led by Edwin Freiherr von Manteuffel at the Battle of Hallue. A memorial at the site of the General’s headquarters commemorates the battle.
