1857 Revolt in Tamil PDF Download

The 1857 Revolt was a major uprising by the Indian sepoys and civilians against the British East India Company. It is also known as the First War of Independence, the Sepoy Mutiny, or the Great Rebellion. The revolt began on May 10, 1857, in Meerut, and soon spread to many parts of India. The rebels fought against the British oppression, exploitation, and injustice. They also sought to restore the rule of the native rulers who had been deposed by the British.


The revolt had different causes and effects in different regions of India. In this article, we will focus on the revolt in Tamil Nadu, which was then part of the Madras Presidency. We will also provide a link to download a free PDF book in Tamil that covers the history of the revolt in detail.

The Revolt in Tamil Nadu

Tamil Nadu did not witness a large-scale revolt like some other parts of India. However, there were some instances of resistance and rebellion by the sepoys and civilians in various places. Some of the notable events are:

  • The Vellore Mutiny: This was the first major mutiny by the Indian sepoys in the East India Company. It took place on July 10, 1806, in Vellore, 50 years before the 1857 Revolt. The sepoys rebelled against the new dress code and regulations imposed by the British, which they considered as an insult to their religious and cultural sentiments. They also supported the sons of Tipu Sultan, who were imprisoned in Vellore Fort. The mutiny was suppressed by the British troops within a day, but it claimed many lives on both sides.

  • The Panchalankurichi Rebellion: This was a series of battles fought between 1799 and 1801 by the Poligars (local chieftains) of Panchalankurichi, led by Veerapandiya Kattabomman, against the British East India Company. The Poligars resisted the British taxation and interference in their affairs. They also supported Tipu Sultan in his war against the British. The rebellion was crushed by the British forces, and Kattabomman was captured and hanged.

  • The Marudu Brothers' Rebellion: This was another rebellion by the Poligars of Sivaganga, led by Chinna Marudu and Periya Marudu, against the British East India Company. The Marudu brothers were inspired by Kattabomman and Tipu Sultan, and they also had links with the 1857 Revolt leaders like Nana Sahib and Rani Lakshmibai. They mobilized a large army of sepoys and civilians, and attacked the British troops and forts in various places. The rebellion lasted from 1801 to 1802, and was eventually quelled by the British forces. The Marudu brothers were captured and executed.
