maori wars 1845 to 18....

just a thought, the n/z maori wars ran into the 1880s, a lot of the old victorian soldiers stayed on and formed the armed constabulary, myelf I have a lot of armed constabulary nostalgia and with such a small country that we are would possibly think that most followers of our victorian war period would like the extension of the forum to include that period ..heh, no drama just a thought, regards des

I am curious. What is the basis of that statement?

Cowan states
"This was the last time Te Kooti was seen over a gun-sight, and it was the final engagement in the Maori wars; the date was the 14th February, 1872. The parting shot was fired by Private Nikora te Tuhi, a Ngati-Rangitihi man, at two men going over the last ridge."

Of course during the 1870s the Armed Constabulary was active, culminating in the peaceful occupation of Parihaka in 1881, but, as I would call that a denouement to the war, as the bullets had stopped flying in 1872.
