Die hinderlaag by die Wit Umfolozi (Sondag, 27 Desember 1838)

Die Trekkers word op 27 Desember 1838 in 'n hinderlaag gelei toe Dingane se krygers in 'n kloof onder hulle skilde skuil. Kommandante Landman en De Lange se manne word van die laer afgesny deur die hordes Zoeloes en word gedwing om deur die Wit Umfolozi-rivier te swem. In die daaropvolgende daglange geveg sneuwel Alexander Biggar, vyf Trekkers en byna al Biggar se swartes. Aan die Zoeloes se kant word ongeveer 1000 dooies getel. Hans de Lange se besluitneming en vinnige handeling red die kommando uit die hinderlaag en die Trekkers bereik die veiligheid van die laer.
