Aetoloakarnania, Messolongi - "Exodus" of the sun !

The "Exodus of the Guards" (The Sortie) on the night of April 10, 1826, was the last act of the third siege of Messolongi (15 April 1825 - 10 April 1826) by Ibrahim Pasha. It is reproduced by Delacroix in his famous painting "Greece on the Ruins of Messolongi" (La Grèce sur les ruines de Missolonghi - Musée des Beaux-Arts de Bordeaux). The siege of the city inspired the National Poet Dionyssios Solomos to write his famous poem "The Free Besieged".
