Vođe prvog srpskog ustanka sa Karađorđem na čelu bili su svesni da je za njihovu uspešnu borbu protiv Otomanskog carstva potrebna međunarodna podrška. Zbog dugoročnih interesa Habsburške monarhije, kojima je bilo mnogo prihvatljivije da Srbi i dalje ostanu pod suverenitetom turske carevine nego da stvore samostalnu državu, vođama ustanka nije preostalo ništa drugo nego da se obrate dalekoj Rusiji

U istoriografiji srpskog naroda novijeg doba, neki događaji i ličnosti nisu dobili odgovarajući publicitet, jer se nisu uklapali u mitološku ili ideološku sliku prošlosti, koja je preovlađivala kod nekih naših istoričara u vremenu između dva rata ili posle oslobođenja. Zato ovde objavljujemo istorijske događaje koji su manje poznati široj javnosti a imali su značajnu ulogu u prošlim vremenima.
