The First Anglo-Burmese War (1824-1826) was the first of three wars fought between the British and Burmese Empires in the 19th century. General Sir Archibald Campbell, 1st Baronet (1769-1843) led 10,000 men and took the city with little resistance. In May of 1824, after fortifying the Shwedagon Pagoda compound, Campbell launched attacks on Burmese lines, and by the end of July 1824, he had successfully pushed the Burmese towards Kamayut, enough to repel Burmese efforts to retake the city.
