From there Flessas went to the monastery of Saint George and called a meeting with the Greek authorities and high-ranking priests to discuss when was the better time to start the revolution, now or later.
After heated arguments the meeting was postponed for a later time in the monastery of Agia Lavra. Papa-Flessas read the instructions from Dimitrios Hipsilandis and reassured every one that everything is ready and a lot of help is coming from Russia. The Episcopes Germanos took the stand and stared asking all kinds of questions like: Where are the war supplies? The necessary amount of money, the trained army, the Navy, who is the strong leader to go against the strongest nation of the Ottoman Empire, the people they are not only with out any skills for war but they do not have any arms and ammunitions to start one, to overcome years of Turkish occupation and gain their freedom!
We all remember the fiasco and the destroying of Peloponnisos in even though then the Russian Navy was here and took part in the revolution. What are the proofs that we have now that the Great Nations of the world are going to help us?
Indeed Flessas was not emotionless from all and after 4 consecutive meetings they proposed secretly to jail Flessas in the monastery of Agia Lavra in order to avoid problems for the nation. But Papa-Flessas was armed and had seven armed man including his brother Nikitas outside the meeting room and no one dared to arrest him. After 4 days of meetings the synod decided to get more information from John Kapodistrias and also get the opinion of the neighboring countries before they would agree to start the revolution.
Flessas problem was the upper class landowners in the villages and municipalities, including the top echelon of the clergy, who did not trust PapaFlessas, and his mission was received with a great deal of skepticisms and fear. They were afraid of a possible failure of the revolution and the hard retributions of the Turks on the Greek population for disturbing their peace, and most of all the loss of their land and wealth.
Consequently, many of them thought to arrest Papa-Flessas and either kill him or turn him over to the Turkish Authorities for his revolutionary activities. But, Papa-Flessas was indeed aware of their thinking and intentions and managed not to fall into their trap.
He was very careful about selecting and trusting friends. He felt safer to approach first farmers and peasants and the poor class of people who were easily magnetized by his speeches and looked upon him as the Messiah of their freedom.
Then he retreated to Kalyvia in Kalamata waiting for news from Souliotis and Skaltsas and the arrival in Almyros, a small port near Kalamata, of the boat with the war supplies. From Kalyvia he secretly went to Gardikion in Amfia near his hometown Poliani and learned that the small boat of Mexis Poriotis arrived in Almyros. Immediately called his brothers, they gathered about men with mules and donkeys from the Poliani area, that his brother Nikitas had arranged, and they all started for Almyros Kalamata.
He was in Ialos, in Mani where Nikitas met with him and he told that his brother Gregorios Flessas had arrived and asked him to give the proper authorization to unload the boat. Petrompeis Mayromichalis called Nikitas in one of the rooms and told him that he knew exactly what the Greeks are planning to do and that he had a lot of expenses to cover and he needs money in order to let the boat be unloaded.
Nikitas went back to his brother Gregorious and transmitted to him the request of Petrompeis Mayromichalis. He wanted half of the supplies in the Τίποτα Δεν Μας Χωρίζει - Μίμης Πλέσσας - Στο Δρόμο Του Μίμη Πλέσσα 2 (CD) to have them as reserves to fight the Greeks when they start the revolution against the Turks.
It must be noted here that Petrompeis Mayromichalis was a paid by the Turks security force and this is why the Turks in return had given him all these privileges. Nikitas did as requested and went to Almyros waiting for the man and the animals to arrive. Indeed the 20th of March Papa-Flessas arrived at in the morning and received the supplies. The men who carried the ammunitions from Almyros to Velanidia passed by an artesian well in the outskirts of fortress of Kalamata and stopped to drink some water.
But there, maybe in purpose or by accident, one gunpowder barrel opened and some powder spilled to the surrounding grounds, it about a couple of pounds. The next day, 21 March the stablemen went there to water the horses of Pashas Arnatoglou from Kalamata. And they noticed some gunpowder in the ground along with footprints of people and horses.
Flessas wrote this letter to prove Τίποτα Δεν Μας Χωρίζει - Μίμης Πλέσσας - Στο Δρόμο Του Μίμη Πλέσσα 2 (CD) the prisoners they did not know anything about the revolution and they were innocent.
He send the letter with a messenger named Paisios who gave it to the relatives of John Kyriakos who was the notable there, they in return gave it to him who was in prison. When the Pasha heard all these from his translator he ordered all the prisoners to come in front of him and around pm of 21st of March was decided to have a general alert and every man who had arms to gather in the town square and get ready to fight the rebels from Velanidia and Saint Elias.
Arnaoutoglou accepted the opinion of Kyriakos and send Spyridon Antonakis to Velanidia in order to bring in Kalamata Kyrillos, the abbot of that monastery who confirm that in Velanidia and Saint Elias there are rebels all armed and ready to attack Kalamata and all of Peloponnesus with their leaders Papatsoris, Kefalas, Nikitaras, Anagnostaras, and Gregorios Dikaios Flessas. In front of prominent Turks the primal notables and the elders, Arnaoutoglou told Mr. Giannakis Kyriakos. The evening of the 21st of March Gregorius Flessas ordered his brother Elias to guard the surrounding towns of Kalamata that they were in the national road from Kalamata to Messini, his other brother Nikitas with man to cover the Eastern part of the fortress and to permit the passage through the road to Mani.
Anagnostaras with Papatsoris and with the rest of the men were sent to defend the monastery of Saint Elias. Papa-Flessas, with the rest of the troops he had drawn together approx men were in Velanidia waiting the night and the results of his earlier dealings.
The next day and at pm Elias Mayromichalis arrived in Kalamata, leading Lakedemons men from Mani no too well armed. He placed his men in the houses of Zarkos and Elias Tzanne and presented himself to the Governor who received him with kindness.
One of his prominent Turkish citizens by the name Mouratis, well known to the Greeks, took his belongings and his family and started going out from the city of Kalamata thinking that the Greeks will not stop him.
Nikitaras then ordered one of his men to kill him thus they all taste the Turkish blond running in the ground that the Ottoman Empire was torturing for four hundred years. Mouratis was the very first victim of the war of Independence on the 21st of March His mourning wife with her children returned to Kalamata. The bad news got to Arnaoutoglou who on the 21st of March disenchanted and he entrenched along with all other Turkish authorities in the fortified house of Kalamata.
In the meantime, in Mani a gathering of the captains of the rebels decided to start the revolution on March 25th, but on March 22nd they received the news from Kalamata that they all started going towards the city naming Mourtzinos, Theodore Kolokotronis, Anagnostaras, the sons of Petrombeis Mavromichalis along with Katzis, the Papa-Flessas group were around the city earlier and many others and were about all together.
Between the 22nd to the 23 of March they gathered in Kalamata about men, very poorly armed and making a lot of noise in the city. We are not like you. You stay in your houses and your thinks will not be bothered. Kalamata was liberated and the Greeks started a big celebration in the city looting and burning down the Turkish houses.
The Greek War of Independence officially started on March 25th, and brought a great change to the Church of the free kingdom. He made a lot of reforms, he put in place the mail system, he built schools in various towns and in his hometown in Poliani.
He took part in many battles against the Turks and he cited with the government when the civil war started in He took part in the campaign in Messenia and the rest of Peloponnesus to suppress the rebels against the Government. Many people in order to avoid Τίποτα Δεν Μας Χωρίζει - Μίμης Πλέσσας - Στο Δρόμο Του Μίμη Πλέσσα 2 (CD) wanted to be in PapaFlessas side. Many members of the Dikaios and Τίποτα Δεν Μας Χωρίζει - Μίμης Πλέσσας - Στο Δρόμο Του Μίμη Πλέσσα 2 (CD) Flessas families several times changed their names either way, and sometimes back and forth, to be on his side, to get Government approvals for various expenses in the army, or to get national land from the Turkish farms including his own nephew John Nikitas Flessas who, one time called himself John Dikaios in order to get approval to his promotion to an upper army rank.
Several years later, when Papa-Flessas was dead, he was complaining, as Flessas, because the Army Department could not find his records. But, later on, due to his personal ambitions, sided with the politicians and went against his former co-fighter, believing sincerely by doing so, that he best served the interest of his country, for which he had great love and devotion.
His appeal was turned down. Then he decided to appear before the Executive Branch and Parliament to tell them he would go to Messenia alone to organize a resistance against Hebraem, determined to return victorious or die in the battlefield. There, he built three lines of defense. The second one was commanded by Pierron Voides and his fighters from MANI, and the third, and most crucial line of defense was kept for himself.
Most of his troops lost their nerves and courage to fight, abandoned their positions, and ran away. Papa-Flessas continued fighting the Egyptians with a handful force of faithful to him and to his cause. The battle lasted one full day. He ordered to have his body set up against an old oak tree.
