Revolt of 1857

  1. 1. REVOLT OF 1857
  2. 2. The revolt of 1857 was the most severe outburst of anger and discontent accumulated in the hearts of various sections of the Indian society ever since the inception of British rule in Bengal, following the Battle of Plassey in 1757 and the Battle of Buxar. British historians called it a "Sepoy Mutiny" and the Indian historians termed it as the "First War of Independence".
  3. 3. Though the revolt was started by the Indian soldiers in the service of the East India company, it soon proliferated all over the country. Millions of peasants, artisans and soldiers fought heroically for over a year and sacrificed their life so that others might live.
  4. 4.  Hindus and Muslims kept their religious differences aside and fought together in order to free themselves from foreign subjugation.
  5. 5. built by Colonel James Skinner There were many social and religious reasons for the Revolt. The British started imposing their religion on the Indians by building churches and by forcing people to convert to Christianity.
  6. 6. The British did not even spare the Indian soldiers. Rough treatment was meted out to the soldiers and they lived in squalor. The British left no stone unturned to create an eternal wall between Hindus and Muslims. 
  7. 7. The Revolt of 1857 was clearly not a success but an achievement for the Indians as this was the first time when Indians got together to fight against an invincible military power.
  8. 8. Why did the revolt fail? The Revolt failed due to lack of planning, organization and leadership. The unfortunate part however was that there were some Indians who helped Britishers suppress the Revolt. Had they cooperated the Revolt might have been a success.

  10. 10.      End of company’s rule Change in British policies towards Indian states End of peshwaship and mughal rule Reorganization of the army Policy of divide and rule
