Background: Middelburg is a large farming and industrial town in South African province of Mpumalanga. It was established as Nasareth, (root from dry land), in 1864 by the Voortrekkers on the banks of the Klein Olifants River. The name was changed in 1872 to Middelburg to mark its situation midway between the Transvaal capital Pretoria and the gold mining town of Lydenburg. The British built a large concentration camp in Middelburg during the Second Boer War.
