Description

This book is not a serious historical study of the Sepoy Mutiny of 1857. It should better be described as a handy volume of newspaper cuttings, with a sprightly running commentary of the author. The work has an impressive contemporaneity, which may be marred by editorial emendations. It is also an interesting document which clearly reveals the ideology and the milieu of a young Bengali Journalist of the mid-nineteenth century.

The author of this work was Sambhu Chandra Mookerjee. He was born at Baranagar, Calcutta, in 1839. His father was an affluent businessman. He was a student of Oriental Seminary and the Hindu Metropolitan College. He was a pupil of Captain D.L. Richardson, the famous Professor of English Literature, about whom Thomas Babington Macaulay was reported to have said: “I can forget everything of India, but I can never forget your reading of Shakespeare.”
