Description

After the British reverse at Rietfontein (26 October 1899) the Boers started closing in on Ladysmith. General white ordered a two-pronged attack on Nicholson's Nek and Pepworth Hill. Col. Carleton's column was completely outclassed at Nicholson's Nek, leading to the surrender of 954 British on 30 October 1899. The result was that Ladysmith came under siege.
