(The Relief of Lucknow, & triumphant meeting of Havelock. Ottam, Sir Colin Campbell)
The Indian mutiny in 1857 was the first sign of British disaffection against British rule. It erupted at Meerut, near Delhi, and spread rapidly across north India. At Lucknow, the European and Christian population retired into the heavily fortified british Residency, guarded by a small force of loyal sepoys. Finally, in mid–November, Colin Campbell, commander–in–chief, conducted the exhausted garrison out of the city. It was not finally episode in British military annals. The print after Thomas Jones Barker’s painting in the National Gallery in London portrays the encounter between the three most popular heroes of the campaign. Colin Campbell, James Outram, and General Sir Henry Havelock.
