THE GREEK REVOLUTION-25 MARCH 1821.

In 1821,the Greeks,after nearly 400 years of slavery under the Ottomans decided to take up the arms and fight for their freedom.The 25th March 1821 marks the beginning of the Greek revolution and the 22 March 1829 the day of the creation of the modern Greek state.The anniversary of independence day, on 25 March 1821, is a national holiday in Greece.

The most dramatic example of turkish cruelty, which came directly from the ottoman government and from the Sultan himself,was at Constantinople.

Most of Greece was part of the Ottoman Empire from the 14th century until its declaration of independence in 1821.
