Caption: Marchand expedition across Africa. 19th-century artwork of French explorer and military officer Jean-Baptiste Marchand (centre, 1863-1934) making plans during his expedition across Africa. Marchand, with 20 French soldiers and 130 French Senegalese troops, arrived in West Africa in August 1896. They travelled across the continent and reached Djibouti in May 1899. Their arrival on the Nile in July 1898 had triggered the Fashoda Incident, nearly causing war to break out between Britain and France over their imperial ambitions. Artwork from the 23rd volume (first period of 1899) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
