The first freedom struggle of India in 1857 famously known as the Sepoy Mutiny or the Rising of 1857. Two rebels executed by the Britishers. As the British re-conquered rebel areas, they took a terrible revenge on the Indian population. Stories of atrocities were exaggerated by British soldiers and the press, that resulted in a harsh retribution. Trials of prisoners were swift, arbitrary and brief, and usually resulted in a death sentence. Those convicted of mutiny were either hanged, or latched to the muzzles of cannon and blown away.
