2 April 1879

In the early morning the Zulu Army attacked Lt Gen. Lord Chelmsford’s relief column en route to relieve Eshowe. The British position was fortified and the British scouts had picked up the advancing Zulus so the attack was easily repulsed with heavy losses on the Zulu side. Eshowe was relieved the following day.
