 १८५७ चे स्वातंत्र्ययुद्ध हे १० मे १८५७ रोजी मीरत येथील लष्करछावणीतील बंडापासून सुरू झाले व लवकरच ते उत्तर व मध्य भारतातील अनेक ठिकाणी पसरले. हा लढा १८५७ चे स्वातंत्र्यसमर, पहिला भारतीय स्वातंत्र्यलढा, शिपाई बंडाळी . अशा इतर नावांनीही ओळखला जातो.जवळपास वर्षभर चाललेल्या या युद्धात इंग्रजांचा विजय झाला पण या बंडामुळे भारतीय स्वातंत्र्यचळवळीला प्रारंभ झाला व ९० वर्षानंतर १९४७ साली भारत स्वतंत्र झाला.

१० मे १८५७ रोजी दिल्लीपासून ४० मैलांच्या अंतरावर मेरठ छावणीमध्ये ईस्ट इंडिया कंपनीच्या भारतीय सैनिकांनी बंड पुकारले व बघता बघता उत्तर पुर्व व मध्य भारतात पसरले. १० मेला सुरू झालेले बंड २० जुन १८५८ रोजी ग्वाल्हेर कंपनीच्या ताब्यात पडल्यानंतरच थांबले. बंडखोर शिपायांनी मेरठ काबीज केले व लागोलाग दिल्लीवर जबरदस्त हल्ला चढवून दिल्लीत बसलेले कंपनीच्या अधिकाऱ्यांना व ब्रिटिश सैन्याला चिरडले व ८१ वर्षांच्या बहादूरशहा दुसरा यास हिंदुस्थानचा बादशहा घोषित केले. अवधचा मोठा भुभाग देखील शिपायांच्या ताब्याखाली आला व ब्रिटिश सैन्य घाबरले. तरी कंपनीने कुमक मागवून जुलै १८५७ मध्ये कानपूर व दिल्लीवर पुन्हा कंपनी शासन लागू केले. पण झाशी, अवध आणि लखनऊतील विद्रोह दडपण्यासाठी कंपनीला खुप वेळ लागला.

१ नोव्हेंबर १८५८ला विद्रोह दडपल्यानंतर ब्रिटिश संसदेने संपूर्ण हिंदुस्थानचा कारभार राणी व्हिक्टोरियाकडे दिला व देशातील कंपनी राज संपुष्टात आले.

Viceroy of India

William Gladstone appointed Lord Ripon as the Viceroy of India in 1880. One of his first acts was the introduction of the IIbert Bill which would have granted Indians more legal rights including the right of Indian judges to judge Europeans in court. Although it was a progressive move, the bill was vehemently opposed by Europeans who were aghast at the idea of being judged by native Indians.

One of his other efforts included a move to introduce a Bengal land tenancy bill – which would become the Bengal Tenancy Act 1885 – to improve the condition of the peasants. Lord Ripon also repealed the unpopular Vernacular Press Act of 1878.

Political history is the narrative and survey of political events, ideas, movements, organs of government, voters, parties and leaders. It is closely related to other fields of history, including diplomatic history, constitutional history, social history, people's history, and public history. Political history studies the organization and operation of power in large societies.

From approximately the 1960s onwards, the rise of competing subdisciplines, particularly social history and cultural history, led to a decline in the prominence of "traditional" political history, which tended to focus on the activities of political elites. In the two decades from 1975 to 1995, the proportion of professors of history in American universities identifying with social history rose from 31% to 41%, and the proportion of political historians fell from 40% to 30%.
