Battle of Blood River
The Battle of Blood River was a battle fought on December 16, 1838, between the Zulu kingdom and the South African Boers. The Christian Boers made a covenant with the God of the Bible, and He gave them victory against overwhelming odds. Thousands of Zulus died. There were no Boer casualties.
The Boers were the Voortrekkers who escaped from British rule in the western Cape. The result of the Battle further opened the Zulu kingdom to missionaries of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
