However, the Berber leader Abd al –kader whose power was centered in the hinterland of Oran, held out against the French until 1847, when Gen. T. R. Bugeaud de la piconnerie led a major military campaign against him. Colonization by Europeans (half of whom were French and the rest mainly Spanish, Italian, and Maltese) began c.1840 and accelerated after 1848, when Algeria was declared French territory. By 1880 persons of European descent numbered about 375,000, and they controlled most of the better farmland. However, France continued to face isolated (but occasionally fierce) resistance, mainly in Kabylia and the Sahara region, until 1910 . </li></ul>
