About the Event

The creation of the Kingdom of Greece was merely the first phase in the establishment of Greece's current borders; a process that began in 1821 and concluded in 1947. This presentation examines the Wars for ‘Independence’ that followed ‘1821’ and discusses why and how certain former Ottoman (and Italian) regions were incorporated into the Greek State and others not.  Most of the focus of the presentation will be on northern Greece during the first quarter of the twentieth century. The 200 years  anniversary celebration provides us with an opportunity to re-evaluate this phase in modern Greek history and to ask, What was the final impact of Greece’s Wars of ‘Independence’?
