* Bali – Perang Bali II, 1848

——————————————————————————————————–
Perang Bali II terjadi pada tahun 1848. Perang tersebut berlangsung antara pasukan Belanda melawan pasukan Bali. Belanda memanfaatkan isu hak tawan karang, di mana raja-raja Bali dapat merampas kapal yang karam di perairannya, yang tak dapat disetujui oleh hukum internasional.
Pasukan Belanda beranggotakan 2.400 prajurit, sepertiga terdiri atas orang Eropa, sisanya adalah orang Jawa dan Madura, ditambah dengan 1 kompi yang beranggotakan orang kulit hitam Afrika, kemungkinan berasal dari koloni Belanda di Ghana (saat itu Pantai Emas). Angkatan tersebut mendarat di Sangsit, Buleleng pada tanggal 7 Mei 1848.
Orang Bali berjumlah 16.000 jiwa, temasuk 1.500 orang yang bersenjatakan senapan api di bawah pimpinan I Gusti Ketut Jelantik. Setelah Belanda mendarat, orang Bali menarik diri ke posisi mereka di Jagaraga, hanya 4 kilometer jauhnya.
Belanda menyerang musuh di Jagaraga meskipun udara panas menyengat. Orang Bali menyerang balik dan menghalau pasukan Belanda, yang di pihaknya jatuh korban 200 orang tewas, sehingga harus naik kapal kembali.
Setelah kekalahan ini, Belanda kembali lagi dalam ekspedisi berikutnya pada tahun 1849.

The Dutch intervention in Northern Bali in 1848 was the second in a long series of six Dutch military interventions on Bali island, until total control was achieved with the Dutch intervention in Bali in 1908. The Dutch used as a pretext Balinese salvage claims over shipwrecks, which were customary to the Balinese, but unacceptable under International law.
The expedition arrived in 2,400 men, a third of which was composed of Europeans, the rest being Javanese and Madurese soldiers, as well as one company of Africans, probably from the Dutch colony in Ghana. The force landed in Bali on 7 May 1848 in the area of Sangsit.
The Balinese numbered 16,000, including about 1,500 equipped with firearms under Jelantik. After the Dutch landing, the Balinese withdrew to their fortified position in Jagaraga about 4 kilometers away.
The Dutch attacked the Balinese in Jagaraga despite the intense tropical heat. The Balinese counter-attacked and routed the Dutch, who left 200 dead and had to reimbark on their ships.
After this humiliating defeat, the Dutch would return, this time successfully, with the Dutch intervention in Bali (1849).
