The camp whipping post at Inquabim, 1874
Punishment in the army was meted out at the camp whipping post where the victim was flogged by a police-sergeant of his own race, under the orders of an English officer. This is an illustration of the one at Inquabim which was sketched during the 2nd Ashanti War (1873-74). In 1873, after decades of an uneasy relationship between the British and the Acing people of central Ghana, the British attacked and virtually destroyed the Asanti capital of Kumasi, and officially declared Ghana a crown colony on 24 July 1874.
