Column Faidherbe, French Heritage monument to Pont noyelles

Memorial raised to the glory of the battle of Pont-Noyelles, which took place on 23 and 24 December 1870, and where the army of General Faidherbe contained two days German troops of General Von Mantefell. This monument was erected by public subscription, through a Committee organized in Amiens in July 1872. This Memorial column was built near the site where Faidherbe had established his headquarters. Edmond Duthoit, Chief Architect of Historic Monuments, directed the work. On this monument, one can read the composition of armies and the resurgent primi JAWS illorum immortalitate plena motto is.
