The Battle of Blood River - The Boer picked off the Zulu warriors lining the banks of the river that ran red with their blood - hence the name Blood River. An estimated 3000 Zulu warriors were killed on the veld, in the donga and in the river. Not a single Boer was killed. The Zulus were no match against a strong Boer defensive position. In the ultimate of ironies, on that very day, the British had run up the Union Jack in Durban. The Voortrekkers' greatest enemy had arrived.

He was described as shrewd, charming and sensible and lost no time after his joyous reception amongst the Voortrekkers in getting things done. He removed all the old partisan animosities and established strict military discipline.

Een aande gedurende die oorlog, het sy vader se kommando op die plaas oornag. Die Engelse was kort op hulle hakke, en agter hulle bloed aan. Die oggend nadat die kommando vertrek het, daag die Engelse dan ook daar op. Die offisier in bevel, 'n sekere kaptein JEB Sealy, kry dan ook bewyse op die plaas dat die kommando daar oornag het. Nadat Sealy bietjie rondgekyk het, sien hy vir Japie daar naby staan en besluit om hom te ondervra. Hoeveel van hulle was daar?

Jopie Fourie sluit na die oorlog aan by die Rebellie teen Louis Botha om SWA binne te val. Genl Smuts weier om petisies vir begenadiging te ontvang vir sy teregstelling. Hy sterf voor vuurpeleton 20/12/1914. Die volgende aanhaling van Jopie "Ek kan nie insien waarom ons vir Engeland se eer moet veg nie.
