The Ghadar of 1857 thoroughly shook up the British colonial empire. The meticulous planning that went into the Ghadar, the tremendous unity of the people against the colonial administration, and its wide geographical reach shocked the colonialists. They did not anticipate that their subjects would dare to revolt against their rule in such a forceful manner.

1857: The Great Ghadar of 1857

The Great Ghadar of 1857, somtimes referred as the First War of Indian Independence or according to the British view, the Great Indian Mutiny of 1857.
