Anniversary of the start of the Ilinden-Preobrazhenie uprising

8/2/2010 5:51:10 AM
Today turns the 107th anniversary of the start of the Ilinden-Preobrazhenie uprising in 1903, considered to be one of the culminating points in the fights for liberation of the Bulgarian population in the Macedonia region and Edirne region, led by the VMRO Organization (i.e. Bulgarian Macedonian-Adrianople Revolutionary organization).

Initially, the uprising started in the Bitolya revolutionary section but it spread up into the Edirne region (aka. Adrianople) as well. Although the heroic attitude of the revolutionaries, the Turkish army outnumbered them and was much better equipped which led to the brutal suppression of the uprising. Although short in duration, that uprising has a large historical input.
