The decree was issued with the blessing of the Bishop of Srem, Vasilije, and with the consent of the Stratimirović family from Kulpin.

Dobrilović, who was once a student of the seminary in Sremski Karlovci, did a lot in Austria to unite the two countries and two peoples, but also for the Serbian Orthodox Church. When the relics of the Serbian leader needed to be transferred, he decided to help.

– I had the honor to see off the leader Stratimirović from Vienna and meet him in Karlovci – Dobrilović said briefly for “Vesti”.

The remains of General George Stratimirovic, the commander of the Serbian volunteers from Sajkaska, who won the most important Serbian victory over the more numerous and better equipped Hungarian army on June 12, 1848, were buried in Sremski Karlovci on Monday with the highest military honors.

The remains, as “Vesti” reported, were stored in the monastery of the Presentation of the Most Holy Mother of God, and were transferred from Vienna, where Stratimirović was buried in 1908. This fulfilled the last wish of the general, which he expressed just before his death in his memoirs “Memories”.
