Some of the top revolutionaries took part in the siege, they were: Kolokotronis, Nikitaras, Bouboulina, Kefalas, Mavromihalis, Giatrakos, Anagnostaras, Lontos.
The first action taken by the Greek revolutionaries was to take hold of the water so that thirst might foil the opposition of the Turks. And so it happened. On the 23rd of September 1821 the Greek Revolutionaries entered through the Door of Nafplio into the metropolis of the Peloponnese.
Given the brutal massacre by the Turks in Aegean and elsewhere Kolokotronis gave orders that there should be no survivors. He wanted to revenge the bitter death of his son. Indeed the empire received a strong blow. At that moment Greece was reborn from her devastation.
September 23rd is a day of celebration for Tripoli .The heroic siege by Greeks of the proud heart of Peloponnese (Moria) is celebrated by a service of thanksgiving and parades. The atmosphere of their gratitude and love for the immortal Greeks is very moving.
