Thomas H. Sherratt’s original engraving and etching, The Storming of Delhi is based upon a design created by Matthew Somerville Morgan (M. S. Morgan), depicting the siege of Kashmiri Gate (Delhi) during the Uprising of 1857. After weeks of planning from the ridge under the leadership of John Nicholson, the British captured the city of Delhi by storming through this gate and bombarding it with weaponry, eventually resulting in the defeat of the rebel soldiers and the captivity and exile of the last Mughal of India, Bahadur Shah Zafar.
