Geocache Description:


Mohyla

"... noc cerna bledne, neni dlouho k ranu,
tam nahore, kde velel ze sveho stanu -
zas stoji Zizka, za nim tabor mlady,
nuz, Cechove, hle! Doba cinu tady!"

Z versu vytesanych do kamene na Mohejliku pod Husitskou mohylou.

Do celonarodnich dejin se zapsaly Horice Zizkovym vitezstvim nad Cenkem z Vartenberka v bitve na Gotharde 20.dubna 1423. V Horicich najdeme celkem tri pripominky teto udalosti:

1. V blizkosti renesancniho kostelika na vrchu Gotharde stoji idealizovaná Zizkova socha, odhalena v roce 1873 na pocest 450 vyroci pamatne bitvy jako vubec prvni u nas. Jenom pro zajimavost: Vypsanou soutez na Zizkuv pamatnik rozhodovali kritici z prazske Umelecke besedy. Vitezne vysel model Pavla Jiricka. V tech dobach mela jeste horicka mestska rada uzasnou pravomoc v umeni. Ve svych sezenich udilela socharum titul umelce. Dostal ho i Pavel Jiricek, kteremu bylo v dobe odhaleni sochy pouhych 22 let.

2. Sousosi Vaclava Suchomela Husite na strazi (1903) umistene ve Smetanovych sadech je dalsi plastickou ilustraci gothardske bitvy.

3. Na navrsi Mohejliku (drive nazyvanem Horelid) stoji protejsek Zizkova pomniku - Husitska mohyla, ztelesnena husitskym vozem naplnenym trofejemi a na nich sedicim lvem, obracenym k vychodu. Pahorek je umele navrsen a ma tvar hory Rip. Pamatnik nechal postavit horicky rodak, bojovnik proti rakouskemu utisku, hlasatel husitskych tradic a velky rusofil Josef Stastny dvacet let po odhaleni sochy Jana Zizky na Gotharde na miste, kde podle davne povesti mel skoncit boj porazkou panu hrstkou lidu oddaneho kalichu. Pod pahorkem se nachazi kamenny husitsky kalich a deska s dnes jiz malo citelnymi vytesanymi vlasteneckymi versi Josef Stastneho.
