Product Description

"Boer War: Werwond Maar Niet Met Wonden Wegens Dapper Volharding voor Vryheid: Steijn" is a Dutch phrase that translates to "Boer War: wounds may heal, but not wounds caused by courageous perseverance for freedom: Steijn". The phrase references the Boer War, which was fought between British imperial forces and the Boer states (the South African Republic and the Orange Free State) in southern Africa between 1899 and 1902.

The phrase is attributed to President Marthinus Theunis Steyn of the Orange Free State, one of the Boer leaders during the war. It reflects the Boers' determination to fight for their independence and freedom, even in the face of overwhelming British military power. The phrase suggests that the Boers may have suffered wounds and losses, but their spirit and will to fight for their cause remained unbroken.

The Boer War was a significant conflict in the history of South Africa, and its legacy is still felt today. The war ultimately ended in British victory, with the Boer states being annexed by the British Empire. However, the war also played a significant role in the development of Afrikaner nationalism, which would go on to shape South African politics and society for much of the twentieth century.
