Funny how we never here about this little piece of history....

Encyclop√¶dia Americana, “the Greeks were disarmed in November, 1821, and almost all the inhabitants of Larnica, with the archbishop and other prelates, murdered”, 1835

   While the people that DIDN'T give up their arms:

"But the peasants in the mountains, and the inhabitants of the small island Sphakia, called the Suliots of Candia, refused to give up their arms, collected, and drove the Turks back again into the towns."

Interesting how that works, ISN'T IT?
