Colonel Meiklejohn's four-year-old daughter, Meg - Mr Tottenham's mother-in-law - was in the garrison throughout the siege in the scorching heat of the high summer of 1897.
Among the rare mementos seen by the BBC are photos and pictures of Malakand and the surrounding area in 1897 as well as letters and telegrams sent by Col Meiklejohn to his wife.

 1897 PRESS RECEPTION
A confluence of events drawing together religion, politics (with vendettas and scores to settle), and social turmoil occurred in Kansas the summer of 1897 resulting in the first significant amount of publicity found to date concerning activities of any Baha'i community in North American.

The American Baha'i community had not, in 1897, yet developed a sufficient administrative or communication infrastructure to foster cohesion among isolated and widely scattered believers.
