NEW! Queen Victoria’s Little Wars
6 sessions, 12 hours
Queen Victoria enjoyed a long reign from 1837-1901. Though her reign was considered one of peace, prosperity, refined sensibilities, and national self-confidence, she frequently called upon the British Army to fight in military expeditions around the world. These “little” wars would extend political control over the growing empire. In this course, you will learn how the British Army contributed to the maintenance of the British Empire during the latter part of the nineteenth century. The course will focus on the Sikh Wars, Crimean War, Indian Sepoy Mutiny, Ashanti Wars, Zulu War, the War in Sudan, and the Boer Wars.
Instructor: James H. “Jim” Hubbard has had an enduring interest in military history for more than sixty years and enjoys sharing his passion with students who have an interest in history. Jim is a retired Federal employee who, after service in the United States Army, spent his entire civilian career in the field of National Intelligence. He has moved to Frederick County from Anne Arundel County where he was active in the Peer Learning Partnership of the community college there.
