PREFACE.

Only one history of the Ashantee War has appeared or is likely to appear—that by Major. Brackenbury.

The following account is published for two reasons.

1st. It attempts to provide a connected narrative of what took place, with descriptions of the country and scenes we passed through, which are beneath the dignity of history, but about which many are still interested.

2nd. It attempts to answer a number of questions which everyone is still asking. This has been done by culling from the published official documents such matter as seemed to be of popular interest.

Hence the book is inevitably somewhat late in appearing.
