ⓘ Achiet-le-Petit

  • The commune was involved in the theatre of operations of the Battle of Bapaume 1871, during the Franco-Prussian War.
  • In 1700, Charles Jacques Adrien de Mullet, seigneur of Wancquetin demolished the remains of the small castle, knocking down the motte and filling in most of the moat. He then built a chateau, using white bricks and stones, enclosed by large garden walls.
  • In 1789, the castle was looted and destroyed during the Revolution, leaving no trace of the edifice. The stones and bricks of the castle were used by the locals to construct homes which were in turn destroyed during World War I.
  • In the 19th century, the land stolen and sold during the French Revolution was restored to the Diesbach family.
  • In 1749 the castle was completed by the laying out of a wide terrace 500’ long by 40’ wide on which there were two guns donated by Louis XV. During the French Revolution, the cannons were melted down and thrown down a well. In the 19th century, they were found and returned to the Diesbach family.
  • After World War I, the town was awarded the Croix de guerre.
