Battle of Svileuva (Serbian Cyrillic: Битка код Свилеуве) took place on 11 March 1804 after two previous battles, all giving Serbia's supreme commander Karađorđe the victory.[1][2][3][4][5]The battle of Svileuva was a battle from the First Serbian Uprising in which the army of Jakov Nenadović and the army of Ali beg Vidajić clashed. The battle ended with the victory of the Serbian insurgents.


Jakov Nenadović and Matija Nenadović began to gather the army in Brankovina in early 1804. Having learned that the Serbs had rebelled and wanted to attack Šabac, the famous Šabac gangster (kabadahija) Musa-aga Fočić called Ali-beg Vidajić of Zvornik for help, who was heading for Šabac via Jadra with several hundred Bosniaks and Turks from the vicinity of Šabac. Jacob made a small trench and sinkhole (vulva) in Svileuva with a pass like a stable. However, when the Turks arrived, the Serbs left the trench they were building, and the Turks entered it. The Serbs then surrounded them. Then the Turks started shouting at the Serbs, asking them why they were angry. Some of the Serbs shouted that the Bosniaks could go and leave behind the Turks of Šabac to explain themselves to them. The Bosniaks then decided to leave, believing that they should not die for the Šabac Turks. However, as the Bosniaks left for Bosnia, the Turks from Šabac got scared, so they too followed them. At that moment, the Serbs opened fire on the Turks. Seida's father, a famous hero from Bosnia, was also killed in the fighting.

Interesting facts[edit]
