March 15th

A little historical overview

The Revolution and War of Independence of 1848/49 was one of the most important series of events in Hungarian history. Heroes and patriots such as Lajos Kossuth, Sándor Petőfi or János Damjanich fought for a free, self-determined, new Hungary. Their battle in 1849 won a victory over Austria. However, the fight ended in defeat because of the overpower of Russian intervention. We will never forget the history of our greatest, those who are among the most prominent in Hungarian history.
