Enjoy the sunset from a garden with a view and good company at this social pre-Heritage Day gathering. It will include a bring-and-braai with a rare talk on local history included. Bring your Braai Day chop and dop. The fire will be provided.
Kevin Garcia is a renowned history teacher at Michael Mount Waldorf School, Bryanston, and the guest of Mpumalanga Heritage for this occasion. The same talk was made under great acclaim at the annual Boer and Brit Day at Val earlier this year.
“The second half of the 19th Century witnessed two David and Goliath military encounters, the American Civil War of 1861-1865 and the Anglo-Boer War of 1899-1902. In each case, a clearly numerically and economically inferior power attempted to establish or sustain its independence from a much more powerful neighbour. What were the war aims of the Confederate States of America and the two Boer republics? How did each expect to defeat their greatly superior enemy?"
