Warfare in November

Abakrampa   1873   2nd British-Ashanti War

When Ashanti Chief Amonquatia threatened British territory on the coast of modern Ghana, he was driven off at Essaman in October, then led a large-scale attack 15 miles inland at Abakrampa, held by Major Baker Russell. The Ashanti were repulsed with heavy losses and, as General Sir Garnet Wolseley approached with reinforcements, they retreated north through Amoafo (5–6 November 1873).
