The beginning, Plan and highlights of the Greek Revolution 1821 – The Role of Friendly Company…..

celebration day emotion and March 25th for worldwide Hellenism, since the beginning of the Greek Revolution of March 25 1821 to which the Greek people decided to react dynamically and to overthrow the regime of enslavement for about 400 years, under the Turkish yoke.

What happened, I wonder, at 25 March 1821 and we highlight as the day of our national holiday;

Every year on 25 March honor and celebrate the uprising of the enslaved Greeks against the Turkish oppressor of freedom and self-determination. In fact is the most important date in the history of Modern Greece, as the starting point of national regeneration.

The anniversary to celebrate the national uprising in 25 It was established in March 15 Of March 1838 by King Otto, to connect to the ecclesiastical event of the Annunciation. It was desire of Alexander Ypsilanti and the Society of Friends to link the beginning of the revolution with a great church festival to boost the morale of the enslaved Greeks.

In fact, The Revolution did not start in 25 Of March 1821, but a few days earlier in the Peloponnese, a region with compact Greek populations and small military presence of the Turks.

The military and political commander of the Peloponnese (Mora Walesa) Hoursit Pasha was in Ioannina to kill Ali Pasha, who had become autonomous from the Porte. Before departure, the Hoursit had received assurances from the notables of the Morea that the rumors circulating about the impending uprising of slaves were unsubstantiated.

Achaeans and Mani disagree on who threw the first musketry national uprising. At 21 March begins the siege of Kalavryta by Sotiris Charalampis and Petmezaious. It is the first act of war of the Revolution and ending victorious after five days.

At 23 March Mani under the leadership of Petrobey Mavromichali and auxiliary support of Theodoros Kolokotronis occupied Kalamata and the proclamation make known to the international community the uprising of the Greeks.

The introduction of the celebration

The lecture is in English, with German summary

Αναφέρει ότι οπερίφημος Γερμανός” (Germanos celebrate) declared the Revolution on 17 Of March 1821 Agia Lavra, and that the revolution was generalized in the Peloponnese 25 March which he considered as the starting date of a new era for Greece.

even he says that there was a prophecy of the monks of the Great Cave that p’ that date will happen revival of Greece, and that the Peloponnese Ottomans knew and every year this date took extraordinary security measures.

The celebrations offered Kolettis included competitions in arts and letters and at various events. They were in Tripoli, Athens, Hydra and Missolonghi, rotating within four years, as in ancient times, the Olympic, the Pythian etc..

The 1836 25 March was honored along with Kalavryta P.. Patron Germanos with bronze medal minted on the occasion of the marriage of King Otto and Amalia.

S.’ it depicts the legendary scene, the German holding flag and raised the cross and two armed militants moving swearing or greeting. Φέρει την επιγραφήΘΕΟΣ ΤΟΥ ΠΑΤΡΟΣ ΜΟΥ ΚΑΙ ΥΨΩΣΩ ΑΥΤΟΝ – KALAVRYTA 25 witness. 1821” (the quote is from Exodus, o ', 3). The other side of the medal illustrates German.

Ο εορτασμόςεἰς τὸ διηνεκὲςτης Επανάστασης την 25η Μαρτίου καθιερώθηκε το 1838 by Royal Decree 980 / 15(27)-3-1838 Prime Otto namely George Glarakia, Secretary of State (minister) on Church, Public Education and Home.

The Glarakia was one of the main representatives of the Russian party, of Napa, which at that time enjoyed the favor of Otto.

, 25March 1821: The landmark day for an entire Nation

When history Chr. Koulouris the Glarakia trying to boost its popularity prosetairizomenos the appeal of Orthodoxy expressor, and possibly this is because the religious connotation of the decree and establish the feast.

However, at the first anniversary celebration, the 1838, by foreign ambassadors and embassy staff absent from the feast only those of Russia and Austria with their employees.

Moreover, from the early days of the Revolution it was evident the religious dimension of the Revolution even in non-orthodox religious observers while reports exist in all official documents of the Revolution (B.C. see Assembly Kaltezon, May 1821).

From D’ National Assembly of 1829 It had already adopted a resolution establishing the church where the Divine assistance to the Revolution honored.

The first celebration in Athens where he attended King Otto and Queen Amalia, civil and military authorities and many people, He became the Church of St. Irene.

The Cathedral of Athens founded the 25 December. 1842 and dedicated to the Annunciation to mark the 25 Of March 1821.

The 1839, Ambrose Fratzis says March 25th day was "explicit and implanted in the hearts of Pelloponesean etc.. as the starting day of the Greek revolution ", ενώ ο ίδιος παρουσιάζει τα γεγονότα στα οποία η 25η Μαρτίου είναι μια από τις ημέρες των πρώτων ενεργειών που άρχισαν μετά τα μέσα Μαρτίου και όχι «ημέρα ενάρξεως”.

After the official introduction of the celebration, and in particular 1841, It was attempted appropriation of the anniversary of the opposition anti-Otto portion, with private celebrations in which particularly the projected form of the crust.

The feast continued to be the subject of partisan and parochial conflicts: caused the particular reactions 1846 and 1847 the decision of Prime Koletti for an official ceremony at the grave of Roumeliotis chieftain Georgios Karaiskakis at Faliro, as it was considered to lead to identification of the Revolution with a person.

The plan of the revolution

When organizing the project would start the revolution from the Peloponnese. This decision contributed not so frivolous promises some warm-blooded and overoptimistic friendly, as the conviction of Ypsilanti same circumstances that it was the most favorable.

The Ottoman Empire then faced a series of reactionary movements various pashas, particular areas Tounesi and Barbary.

But most important distraction for the Greeks it was the rebellion of Ali Pasha, which made them even though their Souliots to return to ally with their former persecutor, against the Empire.

Then there was the certainty that in the Danubian Principalities will xespagan unrest very soon thanks already starting undercover operations Xanthos and other friendly by insiders chieftains of these areas, like Giorgakis Nicholas, from Olympus, Savvas Kaminaris, from Patmos, Giannis drug from Blatsi etc..

Thus pressed from situations Ipsilandis issue of independence proclamation, passes the river Prut in 22 February 1821 and finally raises the flag of the revolution in the Danubian principalities and specifically in Iasi, Moldavia.

Two days later, at 24 Φεβρουαρίου εκδίδει επαναστατική προκήρυξη με τον τίτλοΜάχου υπέρ πίστεως και πατρίδος.

The choice of Moldavia and Wallachia should be sought in the fact that in these regions forbidden eve of the Turkish army, while the 1709 the local rulers were Greek Phanariotes.

At 26 February 1821 the temple of the Three Hierarchs celebrated thanksgiving, when Metropolitan Veniamin bless makeshift flag emblem with the cross and, in typical Byzantine, delivers the sword to Alexander Ypsilanti.

fundraiser then conducted to collect a million piasters, while volunteers from across Europe arrive in Moldova to serve in the military body created, even organizing the first section of Artillery with two guns under the command of Colonel Frenchman Olivier Boutier (Olivier Voutier).

Established the Sacred Band consisted of 500 students. At 4 March Greek sailors conquered and equip 15 ships, while in 17 March Ipsilandis raises the flag in Bucharest, addressing the army three pashas in Galatsi, the Dragatsani, the Slatina, the squalene and seco (Georgakis Olympian and Yiannis Pharmakis).

Ypsilanti's army was destroyed in the battle to Dragatsaniou 7 June 1821 and fell to the Austrian border.

The reasons for the failure should be sought mainly to the lack of well-trained forces, the refusal of the leader of the Vlachs Theodoros Vladimirescu to assist the economic and military and excommunication Ypsilanti by Patriarch Gregory V, under pressure from the Porte for massacres of Christians in retaliation.

The Ypsilanti surrendered to the Austrians, jailed and released on 24 November 1827. The poor health of the since not allowed to help the rebellious nation. Two months after his release on 31 January 1828 dies in Vienna.

His last wish was that his heart be removed from his body and sent to Greece. The desire held by Lassanis George and now at Amalieio in Athens. His life and the ways of indicating that he had myotonic dystrophy (DM).

His body was originally buried in the cemetery of St.. Marx and later his remains were transferred to Ypsilanti-Sinai castle in Rappoltenkirchen – Austria by family members in 18 February 1903.

The last transfer occurred in August 1964, when he was transferred to the church of St.. Archangels to Areos Park in Athens, 136 years after his death. H Ypsilanti Township Michigan in the US named in his honor. Later the city of Ypsilanti, which lies within the municipality, It named by his brother, Cerium.Let's see in detail, the highlights of the revolution.

The Peloponnese and the fall of Tripoli

The Greek rebels in the Peloponnese led by Theodoros Kolokotronis decided to besiege Tripolitsa, who was the military headquarters of the Turks in the region. The conquest of, September 1821, boosted the morale of the Greeks.

With the outbreak of the Revolution 1821 Peloponnese, the Pasha sent Hoursit 3.500 soldiers to defend Tripolitsa (Tripoli), where he and his family.

The Greeks revolted again, after capturing Kalamata, They made for meeting their further actions.

Theodoros Kolokotronis suggested besiege Tripolitsa, which was the central administrative, commercial and military headquarters of the Turks in the Peloponnese. He believed that if the Greeks managed to conquer the, They will be weakened and the other castles in the region. So, Rebels led by Kolokotronis moved to Tripolitsa, They set up camps in the mountains around it, and the siege began. After the defeat of the Turks in Valtetsi, near Tripolis, Greek fighters could be promoted closer to the city.

He participated in the siege and Dimitrios Ypsilanti, who had assumed the leadership of the Match, while the four main camps ran Kolokotronis, Anagnostaras (reader Papageorgiou), Panagiotis Giatrakos and Petrobeis Mavromichaelis.

also, Greek forces were sent in Megara, to prevent Turkish aid to reach Tripolitsa from Athens.

As time went, The siege was closer. In the food city dwindled and began discord. The Tripolitsa fell to the rebels on 23 September 1821. This was followed by massacres and looting. Armed Greek, They entered the city beating the Turks, who barricaded themselves in their homes.

The Ottomans who barricaded the main tower, Great Tapia, They surrendered after three days of water shortage.

The fall of Tripoli, six months from the start of the Revolution, It was especially important, as he had shattered the main military base of the Ottoman Army in the Peloponnese and thousands of Turkish weapons came under Greek, boosting their morale. Insurgents believed now that the Turks were not invincible. Subsequently, winners of Tripoli turned to regional castles of Peloponnese, to besiege the.

The campaign Dramalis

During the 1821, Turks attempted to send the Peloponnese three Askeran, to stifle the Revolution. None but the failed to reach its destination, because of armed resistance fighters of the Greek Central Greece. One of them commanded by Mahmut, called and Dramalis because descended from Drama.

Dramalis burned Thebes and Megara passed through the large army of Corinth. From there he came to Argos without resistance.

, 25March 1821: The landmark day for an entire Nation

Then Kolokotronis along with other fighters put under the control of the crossings and passageways, isolating the army Dramalis the plain of Argolida.

At the same time, inside the fortress of Argos barricaded gunmen led by Demetrius Ypsilanti and Panos, son of Theodoros Kolokotronis. The rebels, applying the tactics of "scorched earth", tagennimata burned and stored grain.

Exhausted by the siege of the castle, from food shortage and disease, the Ottomans decided to return to Corinth. But the four escape routes were occupied early by Greek forces, with command of Kolokotronis.

He got close to the Dervenakion 2.500 warriors, hiding in bushes 800 from them. But other chieftains, as Nikitas (Stamatelopoulos Nikitas), Papaflessas and brother Flessas Nikitas, They arrived to help.

At 26 July 1822 became deadly battle Dervenakia, where Turkish soldiers were trapped. Those who managed to save themselves, They fled to Corinth. In the hands of the Greeks fell many spoils, while Theodoros Kolokotronis was proclaimed Generalissimo.

Having lost 1/5 the army of, weaponry and many animals, Dramalis died of regret in Corinth. Revolution once again had saved.

The rebellious islands participated decisively in the great uprising of 1821. The Greek ships, although they were fewer in number and smaller in capacity, They dominated the Aegean, as they were faster and had crews with great maritime experience.

Greek sailors were divided into three types of warfare: in coastal siege castles, such as Monemvasia and Navarino and support land battles from the sea, in raids on the coast of Asia Minor, wherein captures or destroy enemy ships, thus preventing the Turkish fleet to sail to the Peloponnese and in naval battles in the open sea, in which participated the famous fire ships, vessels filled with flammable material that binds the Ottoman ships and then taking fire.

Significant effect on sea developed, among other, the habitants Dimitrios Papanikolis and Konstantinos Kanaris and Andreas Miaoulis from Hydra.

Turkish response, They staged a reprisal against the Greek population that lived on the coast of Asia Minor and the islands. April 1822 Chios was completely destroyed by Turkish soldiers and most of its inhabitants massacred. It was an event that shook the Christian peoples of Europe.

The failures of the Turkish fleet in the 1821 They forced the Sultan to request the assistance of the pasha of Egypt Muhammad Ali, who had armed forces trained by European officers.

The following years conflicts sea intensified

The Ypsilanti and the revolution

Alexander Ypsilanti was the son of Constantine Ypsilanti, Prince of Moldavia and fry wealthy and powerful family Fanariote. Born in Istanbul in 1792. The 1810 He enlisted with the rank of anthypilarchou (lieutenant of Cavalry) the body of horseback bodyguards Tsar Alexander I of Russia.

At that meeting , held in Petersburg on 11 April 1820, Ipsilandis the received courteously and after some questions about the origin and various other assumptions inquired how the Greeks spend. The blonde replied that the Turks everywhere tyrants and tyranny that they have now become unbearable.

"

Looking at him straight in the eye with admiration the Ypsilanti gave him his hand

The next day Xanthos visiting Prince and reveals the secrets of the Friendly Society. He agreed to serve and swears at the typical company, where General Commissioner of the Authority recognized. He was given the nickname "Good" and the Greek letters "AP" alphabet to sign his letters.

The Friendly Society was now the leader of (Petrograd 12 April 1820)

By taking over the leadership of the Friendly Society view on the usefulness of the current institution of the Company's Committees, not only maintained but strengthened him with his own instructions aimed more to the selection and supervision of members, to help the weak and the way admission of converts.
