Tatya Tope, one of the last leaders of the Indian Rebellion, is captured in north central India

Ram Chandra Pandurang Tope, better known to his enemies as Tatya Tope, or Tantia Topee, was a civilian adviser to Nana Sahib, one of the early leaders of the Indian Rebellion. As the fighting progressed Tope developed into a brilliant guerrilla leader, always one step ahead of his British pursuers and with a powerful capacity to rebound after defeat. He was active for twenty-three months, long after all other resistance was quelled, and was only captured through betrayal. He was tried by British Army court-martial a week after his capture, found guilty, and hanged on April 18, 1859. (By John Osborne)
