British East India Company
Sepoy Mutiny and Rebellion
Results of the Rebellion
Because of this mutiny, I'm creating a stricter rule over India!
Between 1757 and 1858, the British East India Company was the leading power in India. It had lots of political power, and it had an army consisting of British officers leading sepoys. The picture represents the British power over the sepoys.
All of this control that Britain had over the sepoys and India angered the sepoys. They decided to rebel. It was unsuccessful due to inability to unite because of differing religious opinions and alliances with and about the British (Hindus and Muslims).
An unsuccessful rebellion for India resulted in stricter, more direct control from Britain. Distrust between Britain and India increased because of sepoy mutiny. Sepoy mutiny fueled Britain's racist attitude.
