- "No -- we make our stand here. We can't let the Separatists take the city."
- ―Clone trooper captain
Around 21.5 BBY, nine Galactic Republic clone troopers made their last stand against the Separatist Droid Army on the outskirts of the city. The clones erected a deflector shield at their final position to defend a bridge leading directly into the city. Upon the arrival of Jedi Master Plo Koon, the troops managed to defeat the Separatists and save the city.
