he marched against the plucky little
British garrison at Cawnpore. The
garrison held out as long as It could,

all and to send them to a place of
safety, the starving white luen at
length surrendered. This waa on June
27, 1857. Nana ordered the garrison
to inarch out of the city and to board

river's edge. No sooner wero the boats
afloat than by Nana's orders the btlp
