  • The sepoys were Indian soldiers who fought for the British. But however, the British came up with new ammunition that the seals of their ammunition had to be bitten off which contained pork that Hindus/ Muslims can not eat because it went against their religion. A rebellion had begun when 85 sepoys refused for the new ammunition. Intense fighting and rebellion spread across India and many sepoys were sent to jail. The British then sent troops to stop the rebellion.
