Indian Mutiny, 1857, Lucknow

Lucknow was besieged by rebel troops on July 1, 1857, and Sir Henry Lawrence, with the European inhabitants of the station and a single battalion of troops, withdrew to the Residency, which he had fortified and provisioned. Lawrence was killed on July 2, but the little garrison held out gallantly till, on Sept. 25, they were relieved by Havelock and Outram, but were again besieged, the rebel forces attacking more closely and with greater numbers.On Nov. 9, Sir Colin Campbell fought his way to Lucknow and the garrison was once again relieved, but on the 24th Havelock died, worn out with the anxieties and exertions of the siege.
