'In 1846, a man was caught stealing an axe in Fort Beaufort, a small eastern-frontier town of Britain's Cape Colony. The group escorting the thief was attacked by a party of Xhosa who killed a guard and released the prisoner. This incident sparked off hostilities which became known as the War of the Axe, or the Seventh Frontier War.'
