General Sir Hugh Rose's Camp at Saugor, 6 February 1858
Grey and brown wash by Lieutenant Peter Charles William, 1858 (c).
This view of the camp, situated on a plain below the hills, depicts Rose's Central India Field Force. During the Indian Mutiny (1857-1859) this formation advanced from Bombay in December 1857 and relieved Saugor, where a small European garrison was besieged, on 5 February 1858. Rose then moved on to Jhansi, the centre of rebel power in Central India.
