The Village of Urghundee, 1839 (c)

Tinted lithograph from bound volume of 26 tinted lithographs, 'Sketches in Afghanistan', 1838-1842, by Louis and Charles Haghe after James Atkinson, published by Henry Graves and Company and J W Allen and Company, 1 July 1842.

This image depicts the village of Urghundee, located about 25 miles from Kabul, and where Emir Dost Mohammed planned to advance against the British invasion force. Before this was possible he was abandoned by many of his chieftains. Left with around 300 followers, he retreated to Bamian. His guns, shown here lined up in the shadow of a mountain, were left behind and captured by Major Cureton of the 16th (The Queen's) Regiment of (Light) Dragoons (Lancers).
