The Indian Mutiny of 1857-58

George W. Forrest (Editor)
Synopsis Three years ago, Lieutenant-General Sir George Chesney, K.C.B., at that time Military Member f Council, requested me to examine and systematically arrange, with a view to publication, all the state papers relating to the revolt of the Bengal Native Army in 1857 deposited in the different military offices of the Government of India. A mass of papers were placed in my hands, and, as they belonged to different offices, different modes of arrangement had been adopted. My first step was to arrange the papers in the following main groups –1st- all papers relating to the first outbreak of disaffection at Barrackpore and berhampore and the revolt of the native troops at Meerut: all documents relating to the capture of Delhi by the English troops. 2nd All papers relating to the mutiny at Lucknow and the defence of the Residency by the garrison: General Havelock’s march from Allahabad and the first relief of Lucknow: general Outram’s defence of Lucknow: Sir Colin campell’s relief of Lucknow in November 1857: Outram’s defence of the Alambagh: general Windham’s defence of Cawnpore: Sir Colin Camphell’s storming of Lucknow. All documents relating to the outbreak at cawnpore and the defence of the intrenchment. 3rd. All papers to Sir Hugh Rose’s campaign of central India: general Whitlock’s Campaign: Sir Colin campbell’s operations in Oude. All miscellaneous papers relating to the different outbreaks and operations of war in different parts of India.
