Age 8

Europe experienced a period of rebellions and political upheavals known as the Spring of Nations. During this time, the Greater Poland Uprising of 1848 began against Prussian forces. Much of the fighting was concentrated in the Greater Poland region, but some fights did occur inside of the Prussian Partition. The insurrection was ultimately unsuccessful for the Polish and resulted in many casualties on both sides. The Kingdom of Prussia had at least 500 deaths and over 640 Polish citizens were killed.

1863 · January Uprising

Age 23

The Polish citizens of the Russian Partition launched an insurrection against the Russian Empire on January 22, 1863. The inciting event of the rebellion was the proposal of a draft to force young Polish activists to serve twenty years in the Imperial Russian Army. Although the protest began with primarily with the youth, they were eventually joined by high-ranking officers and political members. Unfortunately for the Poles, they were disorganized and quickly outnumbered. The Russian Empire carried out retaliation in the form of deportations and public executions. The Poles were soundly defeated, suffering between 10,000 to 20,000 casualties.
