The Sepoy Rebellion took place in India. This was a mutiny of the native troops known as 'sepoys'. They rebelled because a rumor had started claiming that tin an effort of the British to overtake their lands that their bullets had been greased with the fat of cows and pigs. The result was that India would be under the direct rule of Great Britain.
