Second Boer War

Many Boers who were dissatisfied with aspects of British administration, in particular with Britain's abolition of slavery

Monday Dec 01, 1834
South Africa

The Boers were itinerant farmers who lived on the colony's frontiers, seeking better pastures for their livestock. Many Boers who were dissatisfied with aspects of British administration, in particular with Britain's abolition of slavery on 1 December 1834, elected to migrate away from British rule in what became known as the Great Trek.
