That night the Division was constantly harassed by enemy fire. From Hill 122 out positions had been observed and checked and plotted. Mortars and artillery swept the new front lines and rear areas, making the problem of supply a perilous business.
There were fireworks aplenty on the Fourth of July, but the 90th eked out small gains in spite of almost insuperable obstacles and direct observation from the hill. Counterattack succeeded counterattack, and always the incessant barrages took heavy toll. Nevertheless, by nightfall the villages of Les Belles Croix and La Butte had been taken, and lines had moved forward again.
