Hydra War Achievements
Updated: Dec 14, 2019
Hydra was active in the fight against the Ottoman Empire in the Greek War of Independence, and, together with Spetses and Psara, Hydra managed to take control of East Aegean.
When Antonis Economou, in 1821, announced the adherence of Hydra to this fight, he found reactions from the people of the island that had privileges during the Empire, and he was chased, imprisoned and finally killed. But Hydra finally fought. With 150 ships. And it helped a lot, especially under the orders of Andreas Miaoulis.
