Second Xhosa War 1789–1793

[ 1789 - 1793 ]

The second war involved a larger territory. It started when some frontiersmen, under Barend Lindeque, allied themselves with Ndlambe (regent of the Western Xhosas) in his war against the Gqunukhwebe clans that had penetrated into the Zuurveld, a district between the Great Fish and the Sundays Rivers. Panic ensued and farms were abandoned.
