10th July 1857 was the day on which the Sepoy Mutiny started in Meerut, which actually was the First War of Independence led by the Indian Sepoys and the many small rulers in the country.

Despite initial success against the British rulers, the revolt was crushed by the British through their better disciplined army and sophisticated equipment.

But the mighty fight and the sacrifices of the sepoys and fighters like Jhansi Rani, Tantiatopi who sacrificed their lives at the warfront will ever be remembered by the people of this country.
