Closing the gates at Hougoumont, 1815

Men of the Coldstream Guards and the Scots Guards are shown forcing shut the gates of the chateau of Hougoumont against French attack.
The moment of crisis show came when around 30 French soldiers forced the north gate and entered into the chateau grounds.
Before others could follow, the gates were forced shut again, and the French soldiers still inside were killed.

Hougoumont was a vital strategic point on the battlefield, positioned out in front of the right of the allied line.
It was attacked throughout the day by thousands of French infantrymen, but held out to the end.
