Hi all

At any other period in the history of South Africa, Anglo-Zulu relations they could have lead to events like those that took place in 1879 ?

Cheers

Pascal,

I take it you have no history books that cover this period?

This took place after Dingane attacked the Boer voortrekkers at Weenen.

Dingane's forces attacked a British force made up of twenty British settlers and seven hundred loyal Africans on the Tugela River on 17th April 1838. Only four of the Britons survived. The Zulus then attacked Port Natal and the inhabitants were forced to take refuge on-board ships in the harbour, whilst the settlement was put to the torch. Amongst those refugees was the infant John Dunn.

Pascal,

The British troops were based in the Cape Colony and busy "policing" their North-Eastern border against the amaXhosa. The first British troops did not arrive in Port Natal until 1839.

So no counter-attacks in support of the settlers.

Well after an amazing case like this, it would have been more just that in 1879,that the British government launched an preventive military attack against the zululand ...

And this has not occurred because of the deaths of Dingane...

Cheers
