An Historical Note on a Public Board

This was taken down the same day after outraged protests from people who apparently hate facts.

140 years ago this week on the 22–23 January 1879 in Natal, South Africa, a small British garrison named Rorke’s Drift was attacked by 4,000 Zulu warriors. The garrison was successfully defended by just over 150 British and colonial troops. Following the battle, 11 men were awarded the Victoria Cross.
