Attack at Burtts' farm, 1863

This drawing, by the militia leader Major Gustavus von Tempsky, shows an 1863 attack by Waikato Māori on Burtts' farm, near Pukekohe. A party of about 20 Māori (left) opened fire on farmworkers and their families, including the farm manager's daughter, Mary Ann Watson, and two militiamen, or part-time soldiers (right). Incidents like this occurred across the North Island during the land wars of the 1860s.
