During the 1830s, the Boers made the “Great Trek” from the Cape Colony across the Vaal River to escape British colonial rule. They were generally at peace with British Cape Colony and Natal, but there were running conflicts with the native states, especially that of the Zulus. The Zulu Nation, founded by Shaka kaSenzangakhona, was the most powerful and stretched from the Pongola River in the north to the Transkei border in the south. Sir Henry Bartle Frere was appointed High Commissioner for South Africa in 1877 with the express mission of forming a confederation among British Cape Colony and Natal and Boer Transvaal and the Orange Free State. In absorbing the Transvaal, he inherited the long-simmering border dispute between the Zulus and the Boers. Frere came to the conclusion that the Zulu Nation stood in his way of successful confederation and further expansion and, without the consent of the British government, embarked on a series of programs aimed at bringing about its downfall.
