The First War
The Second War
The second Boer War broke out on October 11th, 1899 after Britain rejected the Transvaal ultimatum. The Transvaal ultimatum demanded that all disputes between the two states had to be settled by arbitration; that British troops bound for South Africa by ship should not disembark. British army reinforcement arrived in south africa in 1900. On June 5th, 1900, Britain took control of the Boer capital, Pretoria. The 2nd Boer War ended in May of 1902 with the signing of the Treaty of Vereeniging. The peace settlement brought the Transvaal and the Orange Free State as Boer republics to an end. In 1907, the British granted £3 million to the Boers for restocking and repairing farm lands and promised eventual self-government.
