Sappers were the combat engineers who were typically incharge of any general construction and repair as well a bridge-building and field defenses. The images are taken from "The Campaign in India 1857-1858", from drawings made during the eventful period of the Great Mutiny. The Indian Rebellion of 1857 began in the town of Meerut when a group of sepoys, native soldiers employed by the British East India Company's army, mutinied because of perceived race-based injustices and inequities. The uprising was soon converted into insurrection or civilian rebellion against the Company.
