Short Note This is a short note

In November 1830, the Belgian National Congress declared independence from the Netherlands, and had drawn up a constitution. Now in resistance to this secession, Dutch troops invade Belgium. However, they are forced to withdraw two weeks later, on 20th August, when the French army enters Belgian territory.
