The Voortrekker Monument: Dolos, koeksisters & SA pride - The monument, designed “…to stand for 1000 years …” was inaugurated on December 16 1949 to honour the less than 500 pioneers who held off an attack by 10000 of King Dingane’s warriors in 1838. It became known as the Battle of Blood River & December 16 the Day of the Vow (now Reconciliation Day) because the Voortrekkers promised God that should they be victorious, they would observe the day as one of thanksgiving.
