The fort antedated the Anglo-Zulu war of 1879, and was used as an assembly point during that war by Col. Wood, commander of the fourth column, in the advance to conference hill and then Bemba's kop. They had gained their first objectives by 10 January 1879, and the column was preparing to support the advance of the central column when the disaster at Isandlwana created a setback for these aggressive tactics..
