Indian Mutiny Page

One of my interests from a historical perspective has been the Indian Mutiny of 1857. This event is referred to in many ways, though in India, it is known as The First War of Independence

During this period of time, the East India Company still ruled India on Britain's behalf, though there was a focus toward reform and improvement within some British circles. These Colonial controllers did not openly consider the needs of the many disparate groups within India (land owners, religious leaders, business owners, nor least of all the rural population.)

The military control at this time was seconded to the Bengal Army, a force mainly comprise of Northern Indians. The terminology used to describe these troops was "sepoy" and the members were members of both the Hindu and Muslim faiths.

Here I will give you a few website references to help you to independently review some of the observations from this event.
