There was a considerable amount of fighting in the first campaign from 1865-6 but very little in the second from 1867-8. The Basotho were completely defeated in the field but, owing to the failure of the Free State to capture Thaba Bosiu, the Basotho managed to keep on skirmishing until Great Britain stepped in and forced the Free State, completely exhausted financially, to make peace on terms which secured the Basotho in the possession of their country as it is to-day but under the rule of the Cape Colony.
