Abstract

On Friday, 17 May 1900, London was awash with some of the wildest celebrations the capital had ever witnessed. For months the public had been following the events in Mafeking, a small British town in the Cape Colony, South Africa, which was besieged by the Boers in October 1899, shortly after their declaration of war on the British Empire. The siege lasted 217 days, and when news reached London that British forces had finally liberated the garrison and the civilians, thousands took to the streets, cheering, dancing, and drinking.1
