Rorke's Drift
The Battle of Rorke's Drift.
About this creation
Rorke's Drift was a battle fought during the Anglo-Zulu war. The British went to Africa uner the command of Lord Chelmsford, who, as he advanced, set up a supply dump at Rorke's Drift and Isandlwana. Chelmsford pushed on in scouting paties with 2,500 hundred men- half his whole force. He then received a messages from Isandlwana saying "The camp is surrounded and will be overrun without assistence!" Chelmsford arrived to find most of his men dead, with few alive. He decided to retreat, and set up a hostile camp.He saw the flames of Rorke's Drift in the distance- it too was under attack. Rorke's Drift was a minor cattle Kraal, or cattle enclosure named after its deceased owner, James Rorke. Only 139 soldiers were there to defend it. A Zulu force of about 5,000 attacked, but suffered heavy casualites and retreated. The British used empty biscuit boxes and crates to stop Zulu arrows from penetrating. The British suffered 17 dead and 14 wounded.
