Monument-obelisk to the grenadiers of Miloradovich
In the fall of 1912, a monument-obelisk to Miloradovich’s grenadiers was erected on Cathedral Square near the Trinity Cathedral. Russian General Mikhail Andreevich Miloradovich is one of the students of Alexander Vasilyevich Suvorov. For special services M.A. Miloradovich was awarded the title of General, who is at the Person of His Majesty and was the first to receive the right to wear the monogram of Emperor Alexander I on epaulets.
During the Great Patriotic War of 1812, the Tarutinsky maneuver took place in these places. After the capture of Moscow by the French, the Russian army retreated to the village of Tarutino in order to occupy the roads to Tula and Kaluga, along which Napoleon could move back.
Miloradovich’s grenadiers fought under his command and died in battle near Podolsk. The obelisk monument is a pyramid with the coat of arms of Alexander I on top and 8 pyramidal pedestals connected by chains.
During the years of Soviet power, the monument was converted into a monument to Karl Marx, and only in the 90s. XX century monument-obelisk to the grenadiers of Miloradovich was restored.
