The Revolt of 1857 is an important landmark in the history of Modern India. As the historians have paid scant and inadequate attention to the revolt of 1857 in the Saugor and Nerbudda Territories, an important and wital gap has been created in the nationalist movement of India in general and these territories in particular. The obeject of this book is to fill this gap.
Another object of this book is to delineate the nature and consequences of the British rule in these territories. Since 1818 after their victory over the Marathas in the third Anglo-Maratha War, it had antagonized both the local chiefs and the people alike in them. It was manifested in the forms of the Bundela revellion of 1842 and the revolt of 1857. It is a noteworthy fact that both these revolts were feudal revolts. Under the prevailing circumstances it was but natural that both these revolts were led by the dispossessed and discontented feudal chiefs as the age of the popular revolt or mass upsurge had not yet begun in India
