Wrute a note on Second Burmese war:
In 1852, commercial disputes in Rangoon prompted new hostilities between the British and the Burmese. After the end of the second Burmese war (1852), Dalhousie annexed lower Burma with its capital at Pegu. Major Arthur phayre was appointed the commissioner of the new province. His administration also proved to be efficient. The annexation of lower Burma proved beneficial to Britain. Rangoon, Britain’s most valuable acquisition from the war became one of the biggest ports in Asia.
