Confirms our thoughts. That what really took place at Isandlwana was mostly speculation.

Why do you say that? Weve travelled a long way in terms of evidence and factual accounts from that written report, compiled days after the battle.

Springbok is correct. There are certain elements of the battle that are open to interpretation (mainly to do with the camp after the last fugitive escaped) but there are dozens of survivors' cross-references which tie down events and their sequencing on the 22nd.

24th
Actually I don't agree with the newspaper reporter's assessment. He was writing just a few days after the disaster and could not have spoken to all the survivors let alone have seen all the accounts that we now have available to us. Indeed many of them would not even have then been written let alone available to him.
