Kanpur

Kanpur (80.34E 26.45N) was a small village when the British took it over in 1801. As a result, the city was quite modern in 1941, with a population of about 700,000 persons. It was an important trade and communications center. Eight hundred British soldiers and their families were massacred here during the Sepoy Mutiny, in July, 1857, by Nana Sahib.
