Generation of 1895

   Refers to a historic group of soldiers and war heroes who fought in Portuguese African colonial wars and, more specifically, to those Portuguese soldiers who participated as combatants in the 1895 campaign in southern Mozambique against the African Gaza kingdom of King Gungunyane. Among the soldiers who were part of this victorious but bloody campaign in Portuguese East Africa were Joaquim Mousinho de Albuquerque, Eduardo Costa, Aires de Ornelas, Paiva Couceiro, and Gomes da Costa, some of whom later played roles in domestic politics in Portugal.
