Geocache Description:


Eräs Suomen sodan taisteluista käytiin Mönninvaaran laella 31.7.1808. Suomalaisista taistelua johtivat rajakapteeni Olli Tiainen ja Iisak Stenius, suomalaiset sotilaat olivat talonpoikia. Suomalaisilta kaatui taistelussa vain yksi mies, pistimen pistolla haavoitettu Olli Räty. Venäläisiä rakuunoita menehtyi useampia. Taistelun muistoksi pystytetyltä muistomerkiltä avautuvat upeat näkymät Pohjois-Karjalaiseen vaaramaisemaan. Ympäristöministeriö on luokitellut kätkon ohi vievän vaaramaisematien valtakunnallisesti arvokkaaksi maisema-alueeksi. Kätkö on piilotettu lähes näköetäisyydelle muistomerkistä.

One of the battles of Russo-Swedish War of 1808-09 (Suomen sota) was fought on Mönninvaara hill in 31th July 1808. Finnish commanders of the fight were Olli Tiainen and Iisak Stenius. Finnish fighters were mainly peasants. Only one Finnish man, Olli Räty, died in the battle. There were several casualties among the Russian dragoons. There is a memorial stone of the battle on the Mönninvaara hill where you can admire the wonderful North Carelian hill scenery. The cache is hidden quite near to the memorial stone.
