HBB then you should find this rather interesting Ditsong Museums

This is one of the best museums in the country and they are always willing to assist with requests for information, especially from abroad. Maj John Keene is the curator who will refer any requests to the correct department.

It's the Anglo Boer War please! grin Them Brits came over, recognized us at the Sand River Convention and after the fact took our land that we took from other people that they took from other people. I wonder what the UN would have said about all of this? I wish paul375 would read this!!

Thank you for the museum link. That is exactly what I am looking for.

I will be contacting Major Keene ASAP.


And you are correct, I should have correctly said Anglo-Boer War.

Just out of curiosity why do few people call it the Second Boer War or the Second Anglo Boer War? There were two of them you know. In fact I was talking to a PH and she had no idea there was a first. Any thoughts?

In short the two wars were caused by the tensions between British colonial policy and Boer nationalism:
