Slap-dash in the middle of busy Grahamstown Highstreet, surrounded by less than appealing car-guards. This monument is not something spend too much time on. Last I observed the monument it has unfortunately come under the brush of vandals.

A magnificent memorial to a heroic woman- During the course of battle, (1892) Grahamstown- the British were running low on ammunition. A woman by the name of Elizabeth Salt risked her life by walking into the battle carrying weapons and ammunition to the British troops. She disguised the weapons and ammunition as an infant whom she was cradling. The Xhosa warriors were reluctant to attack a woman and child and so allowed her to pass and resupply the troops.

Interesting monument but was vandalized with graffiti when we were there.

It was built in memory of the pioneer woman in the Battle of Grahamstown. In 1819 Xhosa’s attacked the settlement with about 6 000 men. Many of the warriors died during the battle but only 2 British. According to legend Elizabeth salt carried a keg of gunpowder through the Xhosa warriors to the men by wrapping it in a baby blanket. This story is shown on the plaque on the monument.

The monument also marks the spot where, under a tree, Lieutenant Colonel Graham and Captian Stockenstrom decided on the site for Grahamstown. They camped on the land where the cathedral stands today. The town was proclaimed in August 1811 and was named after Colonel John Graham.
