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.
