Sir Colin Campbell's plan for the pacification of Central India was for separate columns to be formed from the two Presidencies of Bombay and Madras. The Bombay force, under the command of Sir Hugh Rose, should march from Mhow to Gwalior and Jhansi, and the Madras force, which was to be led by Sir Patrick Grant, should march towards Nagpore. These two columns were to act in concert to defeat rebel forces under the command of Tantia Topi. The major operations of the Central India Field Force under Rose and the Saugor and Nerbudda Field Force under Whitlock lasted for the whole of 1858 and resulted in the destruction of Tantia Tope's army as a significant threat. Other units taking part were the Rajputana Field Force under General Henry Roberts and the Malwa Field Force under Maj-Gen John Michel.
