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.
