The Advance into the Transvaal - A British Convoy in the pases of the Drakensberg
The Advance into the Transvaal - A British Convoy in the pases of the Drakensberg. First Boer War from The Graphic 12th February 1881
What the British have done over 700 years to the Irish, they did to the Afrikaners in South Africa during the Anglo-Boer War - burning down homesteads, wrecking farms, destroying livestock and molesting the women and children, killing more than 27 000, mostly children, in concentration camps across South Africa.
The British invade the Orange Free State with a main column of forty-two thousand men and 117 guns in May 1900. This was part of a force which eventually saw more British soldiers deployed than the entire Boer population: men, women, and children, combined. Against such odds, the Boers stood no chance.
