History: In Burgersdorp there is not only a monument to commemorate the struggle for the recognition of Dutch, but also another brings to mind the three year long Anglo Boer War. By this we do not refer to the Burger Monument, but to a blockhouse, known locally as the ‘Brandwag’ or sentinel on a ridge to the north of the town.
This blockhouse is of the same type as those at Welling ton and Laingsburg and was a part of the line that extended from Queenstown via Molteno and Burgersdorp to Bethulie on the far side of the Orange River.
