Example text

Soon, in May, 1831 Russian army units numbering close to 31,000 men counter-attacked. The 25-30,000 poorly-armed rebels had difficulty in fighting the Russian troops. Moreover, the rebel leadership had great difficulties in maintaining order in the ranks. There were instances where peasants would rebel against their masters, leading them to revolt against the Russians.
