On 9 December 1824 forces of the East India Company under General Sir Archibald Campbell stormed the last major stockade in Rangoon, killing or wounding nearly a thousand defenders. It was a turning point in the First Anglo-Burmese War. The drawing shows the attack on the stockade, which was at Kamayut, very close to where the Junction Square shopping centre is today.
