Sirmorton Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Sir Henry Morton Stanley GCB (born John Rowlands; 28 January 1841 – 10 May 1904) was a Welsh-American journalist, explorer, soldier, colonial administrator, author and politician who was famous for his exploration of central Africa and his search for missionary and explorer David Livingstone, whom he later claimed to have greeted with the now-famous line: "Dr Livingstone, I presume?" He is mainly known for his search for the source of the Nile, work he undertook as an agent of King Leopold II of Belgium, which enabled the occupation of the Congo Basin region, and for his command of the Emin Pasha Relief Expedition. He was knighted in 1899.
Sir Henry Morton was accused of indiscriminate cruelty against Africans by contemporaries, which included men who served under him or otherwise had first-hand information. A bishop has called for statues of explorer Henry Morton Stanley to be removed for his part in "one of the most atrocious and exploitative colonial endeavours ever."
