Description These key East India Company employees worked in mid-18th century Bengal. The papers of Col. Robert Clive and Brig.-Gen. John Carnac cover the transfer of power from the Mughal Empire to the British Empire. Most of these papers focus on Col. Clive, with his items covering his victory over the Nawab of Bengal in 1757 at Plassey. Other events include the 'Black Hole of Calcutta' incident and the thorough defeat of the Dutch in 1759. You can also discover what happened to Clive's chief administrator of revenues, Maharaja Nandakumara. Brig.-Gen. John Carnac led the British forces in India during from 1760 to 1761. Carnac fought and defeated the French-supported forces of the Mughal Emperor, Shah Alam II, near Bihar. In 1764 he returned to the British command, defeating the Marathas in 1765. These papers enable the reader to contrast how these commanders practised the EIC's approach to running India, combining commercial with growing political power.
