Hi guys, this is my new creation! Today in Greece, we celebrate the national holiday of the Greek Revolution, officially started at 25th of March 1821, which culminated in the forming of Greece as a modern state. To celebrate that day, we chose to depict a famous victory over the Ottoman forces of Dramali Pasha, sent to suppress the revolution in the Peloponnese peninsula. This battle (critical battle at Dervenakia for the independence of Greece (Hellas) against Turks (Ottomans) after 400 years of slavery), largely inspired and excecuted by the chief of the Greek forces at Moreas (Peloponissos as it was called back then) Theodoros Kolokotrolis, was fought and won at Dervenakia straights, thus saving the Greek Revolution from dying off. "Freedom or Death" was the only thought in the fighters minds during the fight.. Theodoros Kolokotronis! The Great General! For more details, read here Battle of Dervenakia here Mahmud Dramali Pasha and here Theodoros Kolokotronis Special thanks to my friend @blackdeathgr for the help with the skirts! As always, thanks for watching C & C are welcome!!
