Boers bringing in British prisoners

Thomas A. Edison Inc, april 1900 (1'15")

Here we have a mixed Company of Gordon Highlanders, Irish Fusilliers and English Lancers, as a group of prisoners taken to the rear by a troop of Boer Cavalry. The expression of their faces show who is the victor, and who the vanquished. You can read in the dust and smoke-begrimed countenances of the prisoners, the story of their stubborn resistance to superior numbers before they surrender: while the Boers give expression to their feelings, by cheering and waving their hats in triumph as they pass by.
