  • Text: Le fait le plus saillant de ces mémorables journées fut certainement la prise de Steinbach / par nos chasseurs : il y eu là de terribles combats. Nos soldats avançaient avec un entrain magnifique, / dans la plus joyeuse exaltation. Maison par maison et rue par rue ils conquirent une partie du / village ; cependant les Allemands exaspérés de ces progrès soutenus prononcèrent une très belle / contre-attaque et refoulèrent nos troupes hors du village. Sans attendre le jour nos vaillants chasseurs / ripostèrent vigoureusement et avant l'aube ils reprirent tout Steinbach et chassèrent à nouveau / l'ennemi. L'échec allemand fut complet et important.
