The Greek Revolution of 1821 as a pivotal chapter in Greek history and a piece in the puzzle of world history.
The goal of this tour is to comprehend the Greek Revolution of 1821, to highlight its significance, its relationship with other revolutions and wars for independence that flared up at approximately the same time, and the effect it had on the rest of the world and how it was affected by it.

The Greek War of Independence, also known as the Greek Revolution referred to by Greeks in the 19th century as simply the (Greek : Agonas) “Struggle”, was a successful war of independence waged by Greek revolutionaries against the Ottoman Empire between 1821 and 1830.
The Greeks were later assisted by Great Britain, France and Russia, while the Ottomans were aided by their North African vassals, particularly the eyalet of Egypt. The war led to the formation of modern Greece. The revolution is celebrated by Greeks around the world as independence day on 25 March.

The Battle of Navarino – 1827 “Navarinia” traditionally constituted the festive events of the Municipality of Pylos on the anniversary of the Battle of Navarino.
The culmination of the celebrations is the Representation of the Battle of Navarino, with the participation of real sailboats, the participation of dozens of volunteers, and the detonation of a flagship of the Turkish-Egyptian fleet. A celebration that honors the history of all the nations that participated, but also of the people who passed into immortality by putting the seal on the founding of the modern Greek State.

Be part of Greek History and the Reenactment of Battle -Celebrations that take place every year in end of October (20th of October)  in Pylos.

About History
About History

On October 20, 1827, the Allied Powers of England, France and Russia decided to intervene and put an end to the suffering of the enslaved Greeks, who suffered from the expansionist tendencies of Ibrahim Pasha. The situation in revolutionary Greece had deteriorated since 1825 after the landing of the Egyptian army in the Peloponnese. This fact disturbed the great Powers, forcing them to deal with the Greek problem. The crucial position of Greece aroused their interest. The British ambassador to Istanbul, Canning, has made ambitious efforts to get his country to take the initiative to resolve the issue.
The British ambassador to Istanbul, Canning, has made ambitious efforts to get his country to take the initiative to resolve the issue. His efforts clashed with the St. Petersburg protocol. The difficulties multiplied as Austria tried to thwart the English-Russian agreement.In July 1827, Admiral Codrington received instructions on measures against the Ottoman fleet, which, however, would not lead to hostilities. The three powers wanted a peaceful settlement.
On October 16, 1827, Codrington received more recent instructions stating, among other things: "As for the Turkish and Egyptian ships, now in the ports of Navarino and Methoni, which will remain there, they must face the possibility of an attack." Although the enemies were numerically superior, the damage they received was inversely disproportionate.
Every year the events are honored beyond the leadership of the Greek Navy, by the ambassadors of the United Kingdom, France and Russia.The events last for two days and a large crowd gathers to watch them.

The Battle of Navarino
The Battle of Navarino

The Turkish-Egyptian fleet consisted of 3 large ships, 24 frigates and other smaller ones. A total of 89 vessels and 41 transports, of which 8 were Austrian. The leader of the Turks was Tahir Bey and of the Egyptians Mustafa Bey and Moharrem Bey. The Allied force was much smaller: 12 British ships, namely: "Asia" (flagship), "Genoa", "Albion", "Darmouth", "Cabrian", "Glasgow", Talbot "," Rose "," Mosquito "," Brisk "," Philomel "and" Hind ", 8 Russian, the:" Azov "(flagship)," Ezekiel "," Cangut "," Aleksandr "," Provornoy "," Elena "," Konstantin "and "Kastor" and 7 French: "Sirene" (flagship), "Scipion", "Trident", "Breslaw", "Armide", "Daphne" and "Alkyone", led by Codrington, who brought the rank of admiral, as Derigny and Hayden were lieutenants.
At the head of all the allied forces was Codrington, who held the rank of admiral, as Derigny and Hayden were lieutenants.

At noon on October 8, the two opposing fleets had taken their final positions. The atmosphere was very electrifying when an enemy artillery approached very close to the ship "Darmouth" and the commander of Fellows sent a boat headed by Lieutenant Fitzroy and a few men to ask the crew of the artillery to leave.

But the crew killed the lieutenant and some men! Fellows sent another boat to remove the artillery and ordered the Darmouth to return fire on the enemy. At the same time, the French flagship "Sirene" was hit by the Egyptian frigate "Esmina" and "Asia" came under fire from the Turkish flagship. Codrington sent a delegation to the Egyptians to tell them that it was not their intention to clash with them, but to force them to return to their bases. The Turks in the Dardanelles and the Egyptians in Alexandria.
The Egyptians, for no reason, killed the Greek navigator of Codrington, Petros Mikelis, one of the envoys. Petros Mikelis was probably the only Greek killed in the naval battle of Navarino. Immediately from "Asia" began shelling of the Egyptian flagship, which resulted in its sinking. Heavy fire followed from both sides. Around 3 p.m. The Russian fleet arrived, which until then was further back. His arrival caused excitement among the men of the allies. Around 6 p.m. everything was over.

The allies had triumphed! Of the 89 ships of the Turkish-Egyptian fleet, 60 had sunk or been destroyed, 15 had been thrown into the depths of the Gulf of Navarino having suffered heavy damage and only 14, under Ibrahim, left unscathed and arrived in Alexandria after 2 months. The death toll of Turks and Egyptians is estimated at 6,000. None of the Allied ships sank, only a few, such as the "Asia", suffered major or minor damage.

272 British, 185 French and 198 Russians were killed or wounded. The "soul" of the great Allied victory was the British Admiral Edward Codrington (1770-1851). He was also distinguished in the naval battle of Trafalgar (1805) as the captain of the warship "Orion". He later took part in the British operations in the Mediterranean, collaborating with the Spaniards against the French (with whom he was an ally in Navarino). In 1821 he became admiral and in 1826 was appointed commander of the English squadron in the Mediterranean.

The year 2021 can turn out to be a milestone for Greece. The celebration of the 200 years since the outbreak of the Greek Revolution of 1821 and the War of Independence is a key historical event which, seen and analyzed in a creative way, can constitute the basis for a fertile dialogue between the Greek society and the country’s institutions.

Memory isn’t something static, and History isn’t exclusively related to the past, as it can offer a continuing lesson – useful for our present and our future. Especially for us – Greeks, History and Culture are undoubtedly the driving forces for our survival in our nation’s adventurous journey into space-time.
