Events in the Sepoy War

The first event was the bloody uprising at the garrison in Meerut and they murdered every European they saw. Throughout May and June the idea of mutiny spread through the Ganges Valley. The British east India company began recruiting citizens as troops in 1667. The mutineers marched to Delhi and placed themselves under the leadership of the impotent Emperor Bahabur Shah.
