Imperialism in India

Britain vs India

Britain starts to take over India after the Mongol powers start to decline. By the mid-1800s controls over three-fifths of India.

Britain issued new rifles/ammo packs to the Sepoys (indian troops) but some refused to use them because of the use of cow/pig grease on the ammo packs "reload" and were imprisoned.

British rule over India was beneficial because it brought some degree of peace to the countryside and trains helped travel faster.
