Learn about the Greek War of Independence, 19th century European international politics, and the origins of nationalism and the modern nation-state. This exhibit commemorates the 200th anniversary of the Greek War of Independence, which began with General Alexandros Ypsilantis’ (Greek: Αλέξανδρος Υψηλάντης) uprising against the Ottoman rulers in the Danubian Principality of Moldavia during the spring of 1821.
The exhibit was curated by students in the Michigan Library Scholars program, William McClelland and Quinn Byington, with Zachary Quint as their librarian mentor.
