Transvaal Civil War 1862-1864

(Boer Civil War)

[ 1862 - 1864 ]

*****

In 1852 and 1854 the British granted independence to the trekkers in the Transvaal and Transorangia regions, respectively. In Transvaal several warring little polities were established, and factional strife only ended in the 1860s. In Transorangia the trekkers established the Orange Free State, which, under the double threat posed by the Basuto (Sotho) and the proximity of imperial power, settled down in more unified fashion after the British withdrawal in 1854.
