Dbq Sepoy Mutiny

Decent Essays
The Sepoy Mutiny is about Indians that back in the 1850’s when they worked for Great Britain that heard rumors that the soldiers used cow and pig grease in their weapons which is against their religion and they rebelled. I don’t think that the soldiers use animal grease as cartridges in their rifles. The Sepoy Mutiny was caused by a rumor and a rumor only. That rumor seems to be that cow and pig grease were used as cartridges in british rifles and that is against the Indians religions. Evidence from document a suggests that “the men believed that the grease used was made of fat of cows, though this was not the case”. Which means the british didn’t use cow fat as grease. The actual way the bullets were put in the cartridges of the 1853 Enfield
