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.

This Day in History: Oct 11, 1899: Boer War begins in South Africa

It was a war of greed. An already rich and powerful nation wanted more and was willing to sacrifice anything to get it. The Second Boer War (Dutch: Tweede Boerenoorlog, Afrikaans: Tweede Vryheidsoorlog or Tweede Boereoorlog) was fought from 11 October 1899 until 31 May 1902 between the British Empire and the Afrikaans-speaking Dutch settlers of two independent Boer republics, the South African Republic (Transvaal Republic) and the Orange Free State.

Een aand 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?

ANDRIES PRETORIUS is op 27 November 1798 by Graaff-Reinet in die destyds Kaapkolonie gebore, die vyfde geslag van die Suid-Afrikaanse Pretorius-stamvader.    Die seun, Martinus Wessels Pretorius, stig Pretoria vernoem na sy pa, Andries Wilhelmus Jacobus Pretorius. En in die Ou Kerkhof van die einste Pretoria—wat dekades later die administratiewe hoofstad van ’n verenigde Suid-Afrika sal word—sal Andries Pretorius se stoflike oorskot in 1891 met groot eerbetoon herbegrawe word…

In Suid-Afrika is die ossewa aangeneem as 'n kultuurikoon van die Afrikaners. Die ossewa word genoem in die eerste strofe van Die Stem, 'n gedig wat Suid-Afrika se volkslied was tussen 1957 en 1994.  In 1939 is 'n anti-Engelse organisasie gestig wat Suid-Afrika se deelname aan die Tweede Wêreldoorlog geopponeer het. Die organisasie het homself die Ossewabrandwag genoem.[2]
