MeyerLucas JohannesGeneralhe was born in 1846 in the OFS. In 1884 he was President of the New Republic established in Northern Zululand but this territory became part of the Transvaal in 1888. Meyer was a member of the Volksraad as was reportedly sympathetic to the case of the Uitlanders. He sometimes clashed with the policies of President Kruger but took up arms at the start of the Boer War. He commanded the Boer forces attacking Dundee at the Battle of Talana. He participated in the battle of Modder Spruit but collapsed due to ill health. After a convalescence in Pretoria, he returned to Natal where he commanded the Boer forces on the Tugela. Lack of confidence in him by his men led to his removal from command and his return to Pretoria. He was serving in the Transvaal government, under Schalk Burger, Acting President, when it was on the move in Tautesberg in north east Transvaal in December 1901. He attended the conference between the two Boer governments April 1902 to prepare for the peace negotiations.
