What Are The Causes Of The Anglo-ndebele War?


causes of the anglo-ndebele war?

african and southern african history

There were 2 wars between the British and the Ndebele: the first in 1893 and the second in 1896-97.

The first war was a small scale affair and semi-accidental. The Ndebele did not want to fight the British, but Dr. Jameson (who worked for Cecil Rhodes) saw an opportunity for an easy victory and attacked anyway.

The second war (also known amongst the Ndebele as the First War of Independence) came about because the Ndebele refused to accept British rule, and rose in rebellion against them.

The link below will tell you more, but you could also search "Matabele", because that name is more used than "Ndebele" in the sources.

Were the Jamestown Massacre and the 2nd Anglo-Powhatan War the same thing?

Yes it is
The Jamestown massacre involved the killing of about 347 British colonists in Virginia, about a quarter of the population of the state at that time. During the Second Anglo-Powhatan War, Opechancanough became leader of the native American "Indian" Powhatan Confederacy, upon the death of his half-brother, Wahunsonacock

I think i was wrong on 5 - it was the Anglo - boer war - On 14 October 1899, three days after the declaration of Anglo-Boer War, W K L Dickson (who had perfected the motion picture camera set out for South Africa to record the war on film.

The Warwick Trading Company appointed Edgar Hyman in South Africa to also record the war on film. He was equipped with a neat portable camera supplied to him by Charles Urban, founder and manager of the Warwick trading company.
Film as a medium for propaganda was discovered and exploited during the Anglo Boer War.

It was a interesting point of interest for sea faring European nations. The local clans and resources made the way point really hot.
