276 x 195 mm. Showing groups of the Sawbwa's men seated on the ground guarded by British and Indian troops, with rifles and other weapons scattered on the ground around them. The palace can be seen in the background. After the actions at Kyaing-Kwintaung and Okkan and a few other minor engagements, the state of Wuntho was brought under direct British control and absorbed for administrative purposes in the Katha and Shwebo districts. The Sawbwa himself escaped but a general amnesty was declared to those of his followers who came in and surrendered their arms. By March 19 1891 the financial commissioner was able to report that all rebellion had ceased and the area was being brought under direct administration.
