Flag of the Republic of Land Goshen
The Republic of Land Goshen was founded by the Boers in October 1882, near Mafikeng, on land given by the chief of the Bechuana, Moshette. The lands were given to the Boers as a reward for their help in battle against Montsioa, chief of the Barolong. Moshette, with the help of the Boers of Nicklass Gey van Pittius, inflicted a crushing defeat to his rival, coming to burn down his capital, Sehuba.
On 6 August 1883 the Republic of Land Goshen joined together the Republic of Stellaland, to form the United States of Stellaland.
