Hornoliptovský kurucký regiment Vavrišovo - Bitka pri Vavrišove

The so-called ‘Hornoliptovský Kuruc Regiment’ Vavrišovo was established as a voluntary association of interested people and supporters of regional history with a special focus on the Battle of Vavrišovo ‘Švihrovskú’ in 1709.

Note: The Battle of Vavrišovo in 1709 was one of the last during an uprising of Francis II Rákóczi. The imperial Labanc army met the Rákóczi’s Kuruc troops. Less numerous imperial armies used a defence system unconventional for that time. Imperial troops closed the Liptovská basin, the rebel troops tried to break through an established defence. The Kurucs, despite their military superiority, were commanded to retreat, so the battle remained without a winner.
