  Battle of the bloodriver
by tompt

The monument for the battle of the bloodriver.

Huge metal wagons are making a beautiful sight.

It is located near Vrijheid.(Dutch for freedom, the freedom of the boers)

Also take a look across the river.
There you will find the monument for the Zulu warriors at the battle of the bloodriver.

In a nice Zulu museum, the story of the battle is told from another angle, by the local Zulu.
