Anniversary of the Second Serbian Uprising / April 1815 - 2010 / The Christian Serbian Revolution against the Moslem Turk occupiers

On April 23, 2010, Serbia marked 195 years since the Second Serbian Uprising. The First and Second Serbian uprisings against the Ottoman Turks were critical milestones in Serbian history. After several centuries of being ruled by the Turks who occupied the Serbian lands, beginning with the Battle of Kosovo in 1389, the Serbs, with their successful uprisings against the Moslem Ottomans, were on their way to establishing their modern Serbian statehood and winning back their independence. This excellent video with English subtitles presents the history of the Christian Serbians' revolution against their Moslem occupiers.

And the music accompanying the video is gorgeous.

Sincerely,

Aleksandra Rebic
