Story: New Zealand Wars

Rutland stockade, Whanganui

Rutland stockade, Whanganui

This drawing was made from a rough sketch drawn on 20 July 1847, when British troops moved down from the Rutland stockade, on top of the hill with the flag, and engaged upriver Māori led by Tōpine Te Mamaku at St John’s Wood. Both sides suffered casualties, but in the end Te Mamaku withdrew.
