A Child of Waterloo

'The Thistle' , August 1899 Mrs Frances Driscoll went through the Crimean War with her husband Private Driscoll of the 1st Regiment of Foot. Women were lodged in tents behind the British lines, and "occupied themselves with washing clothes and darning socks and busied themselves in other ways to provide a semplance of comfort for the heroes who fought in the Alma heights or in the fog of Inkerman against such heavy odds." Thomas Smith, Sergeant of the 1st Foot remembers an incident at Gallipoli; "Like Driscoll", he writes, "I was in 1854 a private in 'D' company (Captain Neville) of the 1st Battalion Royal Regiment, now Royal Scots. Our regiment was ordered in March 1854 on station service to Malta, from Plymouth. Without landing at Malta we were ordered to the front.
We proceeded to Gallipoli with the complement of women, who would not have been shipped had we been ordered for war service on leaving Plymouth. At Gallipoli our camp equipment was of the most meagre character, especially as we had to make arrangements for married women. Each bell tent accommodated sixteen or seventeen men, but where there was a woman, fourteen including the woman and her husband. In my tent was a Mrs McKenna, and in the next tent was Mrs. Driscoll.
We were throwing up earthworks on the Adrianople road, against an expected advance of the Russians. On one occasion there was alarm - "The Russians are coming" We rapidly formed up on our own parade ground, Driscoll's position being just opposite his own tent.

Military Operations of the Crimean War
by Michael Hargreave Mawson
A Brief Summary
A joint invasion force, over 60,000 strong, comprising British, French and Turkish elements landed in Calamita Bay, south of Eupatoria, on the 14th September 1854; on the 19th the three armies marched south along the coast in the direction of Sebastopol, 30 miles away. In their path were a number of small streams, flowing from the interior of the Crimea westwards to the coast. On the heights to the south of one of these, the River Alma, the Russian General Prince Menschikoff had prepared his defences. He had boasted that his troops would be able to hold their positions for at least three weeks, and the ladies of Sebastopol travelled to the Alma to enjoy both a picnic and the spectacle of the repulse of the invaders. The Alma clasp was not only awarded to those who had fought in the battle, but also to the Cavalry and the 4th Infantry Division who had been in support - indeed one brigade of the 4th Division did not even reach the battlefield until after the battle was over, but still received the clasp. Lord Raglan wished to pursue the fleeing Russians, but his colleague, Marshal St. Arnaud, refused. The Russian Army was allowed to regain Sebastopol, and a young genius of a military engineer, Lieutenant Colonel Todleben, began to prepare Sebastopol's defences.

"Many things are buried in this stony ground : the sculls of the Huns, Roman tombstones, French cannon-balls, and the bones of the sailors of the Potemkin battleship who were shot..." (K. Paustovsky) The Crimean Peninsula is a golden prize, that has always been difficult to control. A land Bridge merging East and West, it was fought over for hundreds of years by numerous nations. But it was Russia that eventually wielded the firmest fist. Today, although officially a part of Ukraine the language you will hear is Russian. Click on the pictures to enlarge. Ancient Greek City Chersonesus. The ancient Greeks established colonies on the Crimean coast in the 6th century B.C. Excavations began more than a hundred years ago and continue today. Founded in 422 BC, Chersonesus witnessed wars, trade based prosperity, absorption into the Roman then Byzantine empires, nomad attacks, and capture in 988 AD by Volodimir of Kiev. The town was finally ruined by the Tatars in the late 14th century. Buried treasure of Scythians.

Cycles of U.S. History - Civil War Cycle last modified Raised in the warm glow following the Great American Revolution, the idealist generation of the Civil War cycle, the transcendentalist, were a pampered lot. As they approached adulthood religious conversion, radical social reform and idealistic movements swept the land. The Transcendentalist school of literature and philosophy was spawned. The movement peaked in 1837 and began to subside. But in 1857, as the Transcendentalists were solidly in control of the country, the Dred Scott decision ushered in the ultimate secular event, the Civil War between the States. This event drug on for eight years and took a mighty toll on the psyche of the country. The effect was enough to disrupt the normal flow of the generations and the youth of those terrible years never developed the civic strength of other cycles in American history.

On the Eve of War Sinop Sevastopol To the North and East
On the Eve of War
Emperor Nicholas I paid considerable attention to the fleet and became personally involved in its development. Ascending the throne, in December of 1825, as the rebellious Decembrists were gathering in Senate Square, he was particularly disconcerted that among them were many valued members of the navy. In fact, two of the most outstanding officers of the fleet, Nikolay Bestuzhev and Konstantin Torson, had played leading roles in secret reform societies. Consequently, after suppressing the Decembrists, Nicholas I laid particular emphasis upon the training of new officers, while insisting upon their loyalty to the throne. During his reign, the Emperor visited the Naval Cadet Corps 97 times-more than any other ruler of Russia. Admiral Ivan Kruzenstern, director of the Naval College from 1827 to 1842, did much for the improvement of that institution. At Kruzenstern's urging, an officers' class was formed to elevate students' skills to the highest achievable level. This class was the direct predecessor of the Naval War College. After approving the new crew assignments and roster, Nicholas I ordered the expansion of the Russian fleet to 27 ships of the line in the Baltic and fifteen in the Black Sea. By the first half of the nineteenth century, Russian sailing ships were among the best constructed in the world. On the Black Sea the three-decked Dvyenadtsat Apostolov was armed with cannon that fired mammoth 68-pound cannonballs; on the Baltic the 120-gun Rossiya was capable of firing 3,000 pounds of cannonballs in a single volley. However, a new phase of maritime engineering was beginning, and the completion of the first Russian steamer in 1815 harbingered the end of the era of sailing vessels. In the 1820's the armed steamers Izhora, Meteor and others were already deployed in the Baltic and Black seas. Engineering continued to advance, and within a decade were launched the larger war steamers Hercules and Bogatyr [Hero].

The Crimean War 1854 - 1856 In 1853, Russia sent troops to defend Christians within the Ottoman Empire. Within months, Russian troops had occupied parts of the Ottoman Empire and the Turks declared war. On 28 March 1854, looking to prevent Russian expansion, Britain and France (with Austrian backing) also declared war on Russia. In September 1854, Allied troops invaded the Crimea and within a month were besieging the Russian held city of Sebastopol. On 25 October 1854, the Russians were driven back at the Battle of Balaclava (including the foolhardy Charge of the Light Brigade). Eleven days later, the Battle of Inkerman was also fought (with high casualties on both sides). Poorly supplied and with little medical assistance (despite the self-publicity of Florence Nightingale), the British troops suffered immense casualties - 4,600 died in battle; 13,000 were wounded; and 17,500 died of disease. The French and British forced the fall of Sebastopol on 11 September 1885 and peace was subsequently concluded at Paris. Within fifteen years, the Russian were back in Sebastopol and rearming.

Crimean War (1854-56)
David Cody , Associate Professor of English, Hartwick College
ngland entered this war between Russia and Turkey on the side of the Turks because Russia was seeking to control the Dardanelles and thus threaten England's Mediterranean sea routes. The country might not have gone to war had it not been so popular, patriotism being inflamed by such works as Charles Kingsley 's Westward Ho! The misunderstood order that lead to the suicidal Charge of the Light Brigade (by a brigade of light cavalry over open terrain against well-defended heavy artillery) was unfortunately symptomatic of the ineptness of the British command. The army's problems were made public by the first real war correspondent, William Russell of the London Times . (Other outrages included the inability of the supply corps to get food to starving soldiers six miles away.) The exposure lead to reform. As the enemy killed fewer British soldiers than starvation and cholera, so the gallantry of the Light Brigade was less consequential than the actions of Florence Nightingale, who reformed the way the hospitals were being run and invented the nursing profession.
