E's [His Excellency] arrival with an indescribable uproar". During the s, European initiatives against the Arab slave trade caused an economic crisis in northern Sudan , precipitating increasing unrest.
Relations between Egypt and Abyssinia later renamed Ethiopia had become strained due to a dispute over the district of Bogos, and war broke out in An Egyptian expedition was completely defeated near Gundet.
A second and larger expedition under Prince Hassan was sent the following year and was routed at Gura. Matters then remained quiet until March , when Gordon proceeded to Massawa , hoping to make peace with the Abyssinians.
He went up to Bogos and wrote to the king proposing terms. He received no reply as the king had gone southwards to fight with the Shoa.
Gordon, seeing that the Abyssinian difficulty could wait, proceeded to Khartoum. In , Egypt went bankrupt. A group of European financial commissioners led by Evelyn Baring took charge of the Egyptian finances in an attempt to pay off the European banks who had lent so much money to Egypt.
With Egypt bankrupt, the money to carry out the reforms Gordon wanted was not there. Gordon travelled north to Cairo to meet with Baring and suggest the solution that Egypt suspend its interest payments for several years to allow Isma'il to pay the arrears owned to his soldiers and civil servants, arguing that once the Egyptian government was stabilised, then Egypt could start paying its debts without fear of causing a revolution.
We had a few words together When oil mixes with water, we will mix together". Slavery was the basis of the Sudanese economy, and Gordon's attempts to end the slave trade meant taking on very powerful vested interests, most notably Rahama Zobeir , known as the "King of the Slavers" as he was the richest and most powerful of all the slave traders in the entire Sudan.
An insurrection had broken out in Darfur province led by associates of Zobeir and Gordon went to deal with it. The insurgents were numerous, and he saw that diplomacy had a better chance of success.
On 2 September , Gordon clad in the full gold-braided ceremonial blue uniform of the Governor-General of the Sudan and wearing the tarboush the type of fez reserved for a pasha , accompanied by an interpreter and a few bashi-bazouks , rode unannounced into the enemy camp to discuss the situation.
Gordon carried no weapons except for his rattan cane through the bashi-bazouks were armed with rifles and swords , but Gordon showed utterly no fear while his interpreter and the bashi-bazouks were visibly nervous as the rebels numbered about 3, A tense stand-off ensued, and though the rebels could have easily killed Gordon and his party, as Gordon wrote in a letter to his sister that the rebels were all " Gordon was summoned to Cairo, and arrived in March to be appointed president of a commission.
Gordon returned south and proceeded to Harrar , south of Abyssinia, and, finding the administration in poor standing, dismissed the governor.
In , Gordon fired the governor of Equatoria for corruption and replaced him with his former chief medical officer from his time in Equatoria, Dr. Emin Pasha , who had earned Gordon's respect.
His subordinate, Gessi Pasha , fought with great success in the Bahr-el-Ghazal district in putting an end to the revolt there.
In July , Suleiman Zobeir had rebelled again, leading Gordon and his close friend Gessi to take to the field. In March , Gessi had inflicted a sharp defeat on Zobeir even before Gordon had joined him to pursue their old enemy.
Gordon then tried another peace mission to Abyssinia. The matter ended with Gordon's imprisonment and transfer to Massawa. Thence he returned to Cairo and resigned his Sudan appointment.
He was exhausted by years of incessant work. Gordon had gone to the Sudan with high hopes that via his iron will and Christian faith he would defeat the Ottoman-Egyptian system of rule, that he would act as a reformer who would change the system from within to make what was unjust, just, and that he would make things better for the ordinary people of the Sudan.
Instead, the Ottoman-Egyptian system had defeated him with almost all of Gordon's reforms having failed owing to the venality of the bureaucracy who shared absolutely none of Gordon's moral outrage at slavery and injustice, and Gordon's dreams of making things better for the ordinary people were dissolved in the face of greed and self-interest of others; the system remained the same creaking slow, utterly corrupt and oppressive apparatus trampling down ordinary people that it had always been.
At the end of his Governor-Generalship of the Sudan, Gordon had to admit that he been a failure, an experience of defeat that so shattered him that he had a nervous breakdown.
In March , he recovered for a couple of weeks in the Hotel du Faucon in Lausanne , 3 Rue St Pierre, famous for its views on Lake Geneva and because several celebrities had stayed there, such as Giuseppe Garibaldi , one of Gordon's heroes,  and possibly one of the reasons Gordon had chosen this hotel.
In the hotel's restaurant, now a pub called Happy Days, he met another guest from Britain, the reverend R. Barnes, vicar of Heavitree near Exeter , who became a good friend.
A Sketch , which begins with the meeting at the hotel in Lausanne. The Reverend Reginald Barnes, who knew him well, describes him as "of the middle height, very strongly built.
The intensely religious Gordon had been born into the Church of England, but he never quite trusted the Anglican Church, instead preferring his own personal brand of Protestantism.
Ever since the realisation of the sacrament, I have been turned upside down". Gordon believed in reincarnation.
In , he wrote in a letter: I have little doubt of our having pre-existed; and that also in the time of our pre-existence we were actively employed.
So, therefore, I believe in our active employment in a future life, and I like the thought. Gordon believed in both predestination - writing that "I believe that not a worm is picked up by a bird without the direct intervention of God" - and free will with humans choosing their own fate, writing "I cannot and do not pretend to reconcile the two".
V Deo volente -Latin for "God willing" i. Leopold tried very hard to convince Gordon to enter his service, not least because Gordon was known to be modest in his salary demands, unlike Leopold's current agent in the Congo, Henry Morton Stanley , who received a monthly salary of , Belgian francs.
In May, the Marquess of Ripon , who had been given the post of Governor-General of India , asked Gordon to go with him as private secretary.
Gordon accepted the offer, but shortly after arriving in India, he resigned. In the words of the American historian Immanuel C.
Hsu , Gordon was a "man of action" unsuitable for a bureaucratic job. Hardly had Gordon resigned when he was invited to Beijing by Sir Robert Hart , inspector-general of customs in China, saying his services were urgently needed in China as Russia and China were on the verge of war.
Gordon was nostalgic for China, and knowing of the Sino-Russian crisis, he saw a chance to do something significant.
An exchange of telegrams ensued between the War Office in London and Gordon in Bombay about just what exactly he was planning on doing in China, and when Gordon replied that he would find out when he got there, Gordon was ordered to stay.
After meeting his old friend, Gordon assured Li that if Russia should attack he would resign his commission in the British Army to take up a commission in the Chinese Army, an action that if taken risked prosecution under the Foreign Enlistments Act.
Gordon proceeded to Beijing and used all his influence to ensure peace. Gordon clashed repeatedly with Prince Chun , the leader of the war party in Beijing who rejected Gordon's advice to seek a compromise solution as Gordon warned that the powerful Russian naval squadron in the Yellow Sea would allow the Russians to land at Tianjin and advance on Beijing.
Gordon further advised the Qing court that it was unwise for the Manchu elite to live apart from and treat the Han Chinese majority as something less than human, warning that this not only weakened China in the present, but would cause a revolution in the future.
Whether religion or vanity, or the softening of the brain-I don't know, but he seems to be alternatively arrogant and slavish, vain and humble, in his senses and out of them.
It's a great pity! Gordon was ordered home by London as the Foreign Office was not comfortable with the idea of him commanding the Chinese Army against Russia if war should break out, believing that this would cause an Anglo-Russian war and Gordon was told that he would be dishonorably discharged if he remained in China.
Gordon returned to Britain and rented a flat on 8 Victoria Grove in London. In October Gordon paid a two-week visit to Ireland , landing at Cork and travelling over much of the island.
Gordon compared his plans for rural reform in Ireland to ending slavery in the British Empire in , and ended his letter with the claim that if this was done, the unity of the United Kingdom would be preserved as the Irish would appreciate this great act of justice and the Irish independence movement would cease to exist as "they would have nothing more to seek from agitation".
He remained in Mauritius until March The American historian John Semple Galbraith described Gordon as suffering from "utter boredom" during his time in the Mauritius.
In a memo to London, Gordon warned against over-reliance on the Suez Canal, where the Russians could easily sink one ship to block the entire canal, thus leading Gordon to advise upon improving the Cape route to India with Britain developing a series of bases in Africa and in the Indian Ocean.
Promoted to major-general on 23 March ,  Gordon was sent to the Cape to aid in settling affairs in Basutoland , but he returned to the United Kingdom after only a few months.
Rhodes later recalled he and Gordon got along "capitally together". After arriving in Basutoland, Gordon met with Prince Masupha to persuade him to lay down his arms and to accept his father's protectorate plan rather than have his kingdom annexed to the Orange Free State.
Being unemployed, Gordon decided to go to Palestine which at the time was part of the Ottoman vilayet of Syria ,  a region he had long desired to visit, where he would remain for a year — During his "career break" in the Holy Land, the very religious Gordon sought to explore his faith and biblical sites.
The site lies north of the traditional site at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and is now known as "the Garden Tomb ," or sometimes as "Gordon's Calvary.
The Mahdi is a messianic figure in Islam which tradition holds will appear at the dawn of every new Islamic century to strike down the enemies of Islam.
The year was the Islamic year , and to mark the coming of the new century, Ahmed announced that he was the Mahdi, and proclaimed a jihad against the Egyptian state.
The long exploitation of the Sudan by Egypt led many Sudanese to rally to the Mahdi's black banner as he promised to expel the Egyptians, whom Ahmed denounced as apostates and he announced he would establish an Islamic fundamentalist state marking a return to the "pure Islam" said to have been practised in the days of the Prophet Mohamed in Arabia.
Additionally, Baring's policy of raising taxes to pay off the debts Isma'il had run up sparked much resentment in both Egypt and the Sudan. From September onwards, Egypt was a de facto British protectorate effectively ruled by Baring, through in theory Egypt remained an Ottoman province with a very wide degree of autonomy until With Egypt under British rule, the British also inherited the problems of Egypt's colony, the Sudan, which the Egyptians were losing control of to the Mahdi.
The Egyptian forces in the Sudan were insufficient to cope with the rebels, and the northern government was occupied in the suppression of the Urabi Revolt.
By September , the Egyptian position in the Sudan had grown perilous. On 3—5 November , the Ansar whom the British called "Dervishes" , as the Mahdi's followers were known, had destroyed an Egyptian Army of 8, under Colonel Hicks at El Obeid, with only about Egyptians surviving and Hicks being one of the slain.
In both cases naval power was the key factor as gunboats in the Red Sea and the Nile provided a degree of firepower with which the Ansar could not cope.
The only other place to hold out for a time was mostly Christian Equatoria under Emin Pasha. Following the destruction of Hicks's army, the Liberal Prime Minister William Ewart Gladstone decided that the Sudan was not worth the trouble it would take to hang onto, and as such, the Sudan was to be abandoned to the Mahdi.
In December , the British government ordered Egypt to abandon the Sudan, but that was difficult to carry out, as it involved the withdrawal of thousands of Egyptian soldiers, civilian employees, and their families.
At the beginning of , Gordon had no interest in the Sudan and had just been hired to work as an officer with the newly established Congo Free State.
The danger arises from the influence which the spectacle of a conquering Mahometan [Muslim] Power established close to your frontiers will exercise upon the population which you govern.
In all the cities of Egypt it will be felt that what the Mahdi has done they may do; and, as he has driven out the intruder, they may do the same.
Stead published his interview on 9 January on the front page of the Pall Mall Gazette alongside the leader editorial he had written entitled "Chinese Gordon for the Sudan".
As to who tipped him off that the general would be staying here for just a couple of nights, we can only speculate".
Stead's interview caused a media sensation and led to a popular clamour for Gordon to be sent to the Sudan. It is often suggested that that campaign by William Randolph Hearst's paper that led to the US invasion of Cuba in was the world's first episode of this kind, but the British press deserves these dubious laurels for its actions a full fourteen years earlier".
In , the Liberals had won the general election on a platform of imperial retrenchment, and Gladstone had put his principles into practice by withdrawing from the Transvaal and Afghanistan in There was an imperialist "ultra" faction in the War Office led by Wolseley that felt that the Liberal government were too inclined to withdraw from various places all over the globe at the first sign of trouble, and who were determined to sabotage the withdrawal from the Sudan.
With public opinion demanding that Gordon be sent to the Sudan, on 16 January the Gladstone government decided to send him there, albeit with the very limited mandate to report on the situation and advise on the best means of carrying out the evacuation.
Gladstone felt that this was a deft political move. Public opinion would be satisfied with "Chinese Gordon" going to the Sudan, but at the same time, Gordon was given such a limited mandate that the evacuation would proceed as planned.
The Cabinet felt very uncomfortable with the appointment as they had been pressured by the press to send a man who was opposed to their Sudan policy to take command in the Sudan with the Foreign Secretary Lord Grenville wondering if they had just committed a "gigantic folly".
The British government asked Gordon to proceed to Khartoum to report on the best method of carrying out the evacuation. Gordon started for Cairo in January , accompanied by Lt.
At Cairo, he received further instructions from Sir Evelyn Baring , and was appointed governor-general with executive powers by the Khedive Tewfik Pasha , who also gave Gordon a firman edict ordering him to establish a government in the Sudan, which Gordon was later to use as a reason for staying in Khartoum.
Ye are men, not women. Urban wrote that Gordon's "most stupid mistake" occurred when he revealed his secret orders at a meeting of tribal leaders on 12 February at Berber, explaining that the Egyptians were pulling out, leading to almost all of the Arab tribes of northern Sudan declaring their loyalty to the Mahdi.
The Mahdi contemptuously rejected Gordon's offer and sent back a letter demanding Gordon convert to Islam. The Mahdi ended his letter with the remark: I am the successor of God's Prophet and I have no need of any sultanate of Kordofan or anywhere else!
Gordon's abrupt mood swings and contradictory advice confirmed the Cabinet's view of him as mercurial and unstable. His moods were capricious and uncertain, his passions violent, his impulses sudden and inconsistent.
The mortal enemy of the morning had become a trusted ally by night". The novelist John Buchan wrote Gordon was so "unlike other men that he readily acquired a spiritual ascendency over all who knew him well and many who did not After arriving in Khartoum, Gordon announced that on the grounds of honour, he would not evacuate Khartoum, but rather, would hold the city against the Mahdi.
Gordon commenced the task of sending the women, children, the sick and wounded to Egypt. About 2, people had been removed before the Mahdi's forces closed in on Khartoum.
Gordon hoped to have the influential local leader Sebehr Rahma appointed to take control of Sudan, but the British government refused to support a former slaver.
Powers was delighted that the charismatic Gordon had no anti-Catholic prejudices and treated him as an equal. Gordon made all of his personal dispatches to London public there was no Official Secrets Act at the time in attempts to win public opinion over to his policy, writing on one dispatch: The advance of the rebels against Khartoum was combined with a revolt in the eastern Sudan.
Colonel Valentine Baker led an Egyptian force out of Suakin and was badly defeated by 1, Haddendowa warriors who declared their loyalty to the Mahdi under Osman Digna at Al-Teb with 2, Egyptian soldiers and 96 officers killed.
At Tamai on 13 March , Graham was attacked by the Haddendowa whom the British disparagingly called "Fuzzy Wuzzies" whom he defeated, but in the course of the battle, the Haddendowa broke the Black Watch square, an action later celebrated in the Kipling poem " Fuzzy-Wuzzy ".
The ferocity of the Haddendowa attacks astonished the British, and Graham argued that he needed more troops if he were to advance deeper into the Sudan while one newspaper correspondent reported that the average British soldiers did not understand why they were in the Sudan killing "such brave fellows" for "the sake of the wretched Egyptians".
The garrison at Berber surrendered in May, and Khartoum was completely isolated. Gordon decided to stay and hold Khartoum despite the orders of the Gladstone government to merely report about the best means of supervising the evacuation of the Sudan.
We cannot bring ourselves to believe that we are to be abandoned". I fear I have not even tried to play battledore and shuttlecock with them.
I know if I was chief I would never employ myself for I am incorrigible". Because of public opinion, the government dared not sack Gordon, but the Cabinet was extremely angry about Gordon's insubordination, with many privately saying if Gordon wanted to defy orders by holding Khartoum, then he only deserved what he was going to get.
Of course it is not an impossible undertaking, but it is melancholy to think of the waste of lives and the treasure which it must involve".
Gordon had a strong death wish, and clearly wanted to die fighting at Khartoum, writing in a letter to his sister: Earth's joys grow very dim, its glories have faded".
The Mahdi and his followers had been fighting a jihad since and looked forward to taking on the famous General Gordon as a chance to win glory for Allah.
Gordon energetically organised the defence of Khartoum right from the moment he arrived in Khartoum, using his training as a military engineer to turn the city into a fortress.
The Shaggyeh one of the few Arab tribes who did not rally to the Mahdi drove Gordon to distraction, with Gordon writing in his diary about them: How I look forward to their disbandment".
A siege of Khartoum by the Mahdist forces commanded by the Mahdi himself started on 18 March Initially, the siege of Khartoum was more in nature a blockade rather than a true siege as the Mahdi's forces lacked the strength to wage a proper siege, for example only cutting the telegraphy lines in April Gordon's last telegrams were clearly meant for the British public with one message addressed to Baring reading: I shall hold on here as long as I can, and if I can suppress the rebellion, I shall do so.
If I cannot, I shall retire to the Equator and leave you with the indelible disgrace of abandoning the garrisons".
Gladstone was opposed to hanging onto the Sudan, saying in a speech in the House of Commons that sending a relief force to Khartoum would be "a war of conquest against a people struggling to be free.
Yes, these are people struggling to be free and rightly struggling to be free". Gordon had a low opinion of his enemy, writing that the Ansar besieging him were "some determined men and some 2, rag-tag Arabs".
It wasn't exactly fair to the Egyptian garrisons he had been sent to evacuate; they had no death wish". During this time, Gordon, when he was not organising the besieged garrison with incredible energy, spent his time writing a somewhat rambling diary containing his reflections on the siege, life, fate and his own intense, idiosyncratic version of Protestantism.
To keep up morale, Gordon had a military band perform concerts in the central plaza every Friday and Sunday evenings for free, and cast his own decorations for his men.
It was not until August that the government decided to take steps to relieve Gordon, with the British relief force, called the Nile Expedition , or, more popularly, the Khartoum Relief Expedition or Gordon Relief Expedition a title that Gordon strongly deprecated.
Wolseley had earlier served in Canada where he had commanded the Red River expedition of , during which time he gained considerable respect for the skills of French-Canadian voyageurs , and now insisted he could not travel up the Nile without the voyageurs to assist his men as river pilots and boatmen.
It took considerable time to hire the voyageurs in Canada and bring them to Egypt, which delayed the expedition. On 4 September , Gordon's fortunes took a turn for the worse when the most able of his subordinates, Mohammed Aly, together with about 1, of Gordon's best troops, were killed in an ambush while conducting a raid.
On 9 September , an armoured steamer, the Abbas on its way to Cairo was captured by the Ansar for the first time and all aboard were killed. Bitterly Gordon wrote in his diary: Amongst the papers captured on the Abbas was the cipher key Gordon used to code his messages in and out of Khartoum, which meant he could no longer read the messages he received, leading him to write in his diary: Alone in a black continent, dauntless and unfaltering, he discharges his great trust, holding the capital of the Sudan against the beleaguering hordes".
By the end of , both the garrison and the population of Khartoum were starving to death; there were no horses, donkeys, cats, or dogs left in Khartoum as the people had eaten all of them.
The note read "Khartoum all right. Can hold out for years. Gordon", but the messenger who knew very little English had memorised another, darker message from Gordon, namely: I repeat to you the words of Allah, Do not destroy yourself.
Allah Himself is merciful to you". Panzer Division - T Shirt. Panzer 1 - T Shirt. Panzer 2 - T Shirt. Berlin Panzer - T Shirt.
