This guide covers the eastern part of the Zuid-Afrikaansche Republic or Transvaal Republic as it was during the war. The area stretches from Babanango in the south to Pilgrims Rest in the north. This is the area in which General Louis Botha, Commandant General of the Transvaal, operated. North of the Oosterlijn he was assisted by General Ben Viljoen and after Viljoen was taken prisoner of war General Chris Muller was in charge. This is also the area where the Transvaal Government was stationed at the beginning of June 1900. After September 1900 they were constantly on the move, in this area.
