Majuba Day (Afrikaans: Majubadag) was a major annual national celebration on 27 February in the South African Republic in the period between the First and Second Boer Wars. The day was named after the Battle of Majuba Hill (near Volksrust, South Africa) where on 27 February 1881 the main battle of the First Boer War took place.
92 Brittish Soldiers were killed in action and a further 134 wounded and 59 captured. Only 2 Boer soldiers were killed and 6 wounded. A resounding victory for the Boers.
