Memory places

In 2011 in the village of Kačergiskė in order to commemorate the 1831 uprising in the vicinity of Kačergiskė, was uncovered an oak sculpture (made by Teofilis Patiejūnas). Based on historical sources, a serious clash with the Russian Tsar Army at Kačergiškė was held on May 21, 1831. After the battle at Glubok in Belarus, a rebel unit under the leadership of Emilija Pliaterytė unexpectedly attacked a group of cadet troops who had arrived from Vidžiai and banished them. The rebellion arose from the desire for freedom and the aspiration, even the life was irrelevant.
