Members of New Zealand's Sixth Contingent burn a Boer farm, 1901. This photograph was possibly taken by Private William Raynes. During the second phase of the war Boer farms were often cleared of their inhabitants: houses and possessions were burned and the livestock either taken by the British or destroyed. As a result of this method, more than 30,000 farms were burnt and up to 3.6 million sheep were destroyed.
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.
