The Slachter's Nek Rebellion was an uprising by Boers in 1815 on the eastern border of the Cape Colony.[1] The rebellion, which was small and local, was handled so badly that it acquired importance as an incident in the struggle of Afrikanerdom against British domination.[2]

Slachter's Nek is the Dutch spelling. In Afrikaans the spelling is Slagtersnek. In both languages, the name translates to Butcher's Neck (Nek is used in several Afrikaans place names).
