The Battle of Petra (not to be confused with the Battle of Peta) was the final battle fought in the Greek War of Independence. By the summer of 1829, the Peloponnese, parts of Central Greece and several islands had been liberated by Greek revolutionary forces. A peace treaty between the High Porte and the revolutionaries was imminent but it became apparent that the soon to be created Greek state would be limited to whatever lands had been liberated during the war. In August, Aslan Bey and Osman Aga set off from Athens with a force of 7,000 men to fight the Russians in Thrace. The Greek Army under Dimitrios Ypsilantis (a tactical, organized force by now) awaited them at Petra, a town at a narrow passage in Boeotia between Livadeia and Thebes.
