Capture of Boer Battery (film #53 on Edison Film Archive). [Category: Early Film & TV]

A bunch of soldiers, who look to be the Boers, shoot at an advancing enemy from a hill, until they are eventually overtaken by that enemy. One of the Boers gets shot and falls dramatically while a Scotsman in a kilt runs by. A historically interesting slice of the Boer War. A 1900 Edison film.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
