The Boer war and South African landscapes ...

This week, I have chosen to analyze Winston S. Churchill's "The Boer War: London to Ladysmith via Pretoria and Ian Hamilton's March," published in May 1900.

Freetown - The British eventually took control of Freetown, making it a Crown Colony in 1808. This act accompanied expansion that led to the creation of Sierra Leone. From 1808 to 1874, the city served as the capital of British West Africa.
