Grenadier “got registered” in Shklov

2012 celebrates the two-hundred-year anniversary of the Victory at the Patriotic War of 1812. The Russian Army’s military actions to fight Napoleon’s soldiers left the traces in the history of Shklov. On October, 10 1812 Denis Davydov’s Cossacks headed by lieutenant colonel Hrapovitsky defeated French soldiers in Shklov.

On November, 28 Staroseliye settlement became the headquarters of Mikhail Kutuzov, the Russian Army’s Commander in Chief. It was here where the final plan to defeat the French Army by the Berezina River was set up. Pupils of Shklov Gentry College founded by Semen Zorich took part in the Patriotic War of 1812.

To memorize those historic events Shklov installed a memorial plaque and a sculpture of a subaltern officer of a grenadier company of Izmailovsky regiment’s Life Guards. The sculpture of 2.5 m height will welcome visitors to Shklov. Together with a monument to a cucumber this sculpture will become one more symbol of Shklov Town.
