    1768 · Massacre of Uman
    Age 16
    "The town of Humań, currently known as Uman, was the site of a Polish massacre in 1768. A group known as the Haidamacks had been formed throughout the disorder of Poland's eighteenth century. These ""Haidamacks"" were comprised of unhappy peasants, and those of the Greek Orthodox faith, who wished to make organized attacks on the Catholics and Jews. They had carried out several attacks and plundered villages throughout 1734 and 1750. In 1768, the Haidamacks carried out the Uman Massacre, where thousands of Jews ended up being killed. It is estimated that roughly 20,000 Jews and Poles were murdered in the town of Uman alone; other nearby areas were impacted as well."
    1789 · Black Procession
    Age 37
    Citizens of Poland gathered for a demonstration in Warsaw on December 2, 1789. The protest, referred to as the Black Procession, was focused primarily on much-needed urban reform. Over 294 representatives marched peacefully in the streets, dressed in black. The demands included the right to representation in parliament, the right to buy land estates, and reforms to the current urban law. The cause succeeded and the Free Royal Cities Act was eventually passed on April 18, 1791, as an amendment to the Constitution of May 3.
    1792 · Polish-Russian War of 1792
    Age 40
    From May 18 until July 27 of 1792, the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth fought against both the Targowica Confederation and the Russian Empire. The Polish forces found themselves retreating from the dominant Russian forces during the conflicts in Lithuania and Ukraine, but ended up showing a surprising amount of resistance in the south. Despite nearly three months of battles, neither side managed to win a decisive victory. The Polish King Stanisław August Poniatowski ultimately sought a diplomatic solution, which resulted in them succumbing to Russia's demands and joining the Targowica Confederation.
