Many events affect the shaping of a country. These instances could be a combination of multiple factors. War is a specific occurrence that could affect any country tremendously. Every portion has explicit affects. The Boer War is a detailed incident that had numerous affects on the parties involved.

The Boer War occurred in two specific time frames. The first Boer War started on December 16, 1880. This war lasted until March 23, 1881. (Bellairs) This war is often referred to as the The Transvaal War. (Bellairs) The second phase of the Boer War began in 1889. The second phase of the war ended on May 31, 1902.

(Pakenham) The Boers initiated the war by shooting at the Potchefstroom on December 16, 1880. (Farwell)
