June 1919. Monastery near Belgorod.
A group of officers from the battalion captain SLAC came to the convent to worship his shrines. They were met by the abbot, a nun and abbess. The abbot blessed the defenders of the Orthodox Faith and distributed to all the black monastic prayer beads - a symbol of service to the Church and people. The officers were deeply touched by this blessing. Wearing a rosary in his hands, they found the gift related not only to him personally, but to the entire regiment; We considered that all Markovtsev from this day can wear monastic rosaries.
Fate as if she sent Markovtsev the path of Christian service - Faith and Fatherland, the Church and the people. And then remembered ... When Novocherkassk formed the 1st Battalion officer in its ranks raises the question of creating a "Crusade" mouth that would have on their uniforms crosses - a symbol of the campaign for the Faith and Fatherland. But then, the commission found naked, black straps with white piping - a symbol of death and resurrection. Remember and bless others nunnery - Intercession Monastery under Ekaterinodar. We talked about the blessing of St. Sergius of Radonezh - the heavenly patron of the regiment and chief (shelf), General Markov.

But it has not caught on - the authorities reacted regiment is not serious - they are issued within the meaning of this profound fact of the regiment it into oblivion. Maybe because he knew - in the midst of fierce struggle could not help stall the voice of the Christian conscience, hardens the heart and the inevitable violation of debt associated with the wearing of beads. Silent about the blessing and the regimental chaplain. But they are not forgotten: there were, who in his life and deeds mentally fingered rosary beads ... (p. 51)

On 23 February. Ekaterinodar. (Betrayal of the Cossacks, the collapse and retreat of the white troops.)
accomplished the great mystery of life and death. Almost everyone I meet, the days of horror and despair. It seems that the old foundations are crumbling. It seems that the Antichrist, vozsedayuschy in the Kremlin, triumphs over the desecrated Christ. And people are willing to damn thing the service of Christ - for the seal of the Antichrist in everything they see on the ground. A voice like thunder, proznes fateful words: "As many as disclosure - Come out ..." and ends with the liturgy of the catechumens. It begins the liturgy of the faithful. (P. 66)

When the main opponent of the Reds was Poland and the Russian army of General Wrangel, ... the number of red army has increased to 4,000,000 people ... Of course, we must take into account the fact that the Reds were forced to keep most of the troops in the rear as a garrison and also as a barrier against the enemy in the Far East, but at the same time provided Red forces at the front is always greater than the strength of their opponents several times. It is also known that at the beginning of the struggle volunteers in southern Russia did not have any warehouses with weapons, missiles and ammunition, and in the hands of the Reds got all the warehouses of the Imperial Russian army in the frontline and central parts of Russia ...
The Red Army already by February 1, 1918. there were 476.000 rifles, 7,000 machine guns and cannon in 1761 ...

The number of the Armed Forces of Southern Russia in October 1919. increased to 150,000 soldiers, ... and in the ranks of the Siberian army of Admiral Kolchak , retreat to her, there were 130,000 people.
... At the front is always rare exceptions, the number of Red Army troops exceeded the number of white several times, and in the last days of fighting in the Crimean sector of the front outnumbered the Reds reached unprecedented dimensions, as well as the superiority of their armament. (P. 253-254)
The Polish army, after the defeat of the Reds near Warsaw, will soon have pursued the retreating Reds beyond the borders of Poland, but also soon, England refused to Poland for further assistance, the Germans did not agree to pass military equipment and weapons through Danzig and Czechoslovakia closed its borders and sent France, Poland weapon missed. The Polish government has agreed to enter into a truce proposed by the Council. Stop fighting.
With the release of the Polish simultaneous with General Wrangel struggle with the Reds, the Russian army was no more likely to succeed ... (p. 267)
When General Wrangel, saw the hopelessness of the situation, he stopped further resistance and fine evacuated its troops and civilians associated with the army, from the Crimea. Red failed to destroy the Russian army, in spite of the overwhelming superiority in numbers and weapons. The Russian army, with their leader, went into exile. (P. 272)
On the eve of the evacuation of General Wrangel he presented military banners, banners embroidered with the representatives of the parts they established the motto of the Order of the Crimea (the cross) St. Nicholas, the patron saint of Emperor Nicholas II and the blessing of the White Army, icons Patriarch Tikhon: "Russia will be saved by faith." The troops saw them already in exile in Gallipoli.
Supreme Commander Admiral Kolchak, General Wrangel, Kutepov, Drozdowski, Mark, Kappel, Keller Turkul, Manstein ... - about 80% of the Volunteer Army officers were monarchists; in their parts of the gene. Drozdovskii already created during the formation of a secret monarchist organization (Denikin, III, 131), but the Russian Tsar abdicated in his face by the Mother of God of the Living God - and the volunteers did not fight for the political system, but for the great Holy Russia, home of the Mother of God leaving the outer form of government it is determined after the victory. So it will be, and already have! Holy Russia lived in the burning love and sacrifice dedicated to her heart white soldiers , its heroes and monks - but with such a whole had become a Russian ... - Ed.
In a country with a population at that time more than 150 million., To protect their violated rights stood at first only single - and those, mainly of young people. (In 1917. Emperor's army numbered 5 million. Pers., The officer corps - about 300,000 people. - Ed.) Then, in the ranks of the whites in the south of Russia was the best part of the nation - Russian boys, adolescents, women and even children, who, together with officers Cossacks, volunteers and students have been from the very beginning of the struggle, doomed and dying, covered themselves with everlasting glory. Future Russia remembers them, be sure to remember, as the Knights of the debt, but also do not forget about those not allowed to forget who did not offer them a helping hand, leave them alone to bleed in the unequal struggle. (P. 273)
Whites were defeated, but ideas for which they fought, and now continue to live in the hearts of millions of people, turned into slaves, and although slow, but approaching the time of their release. (P. 275)
After the end of the armed struggle with the red and white of the distant Siberia brought with them into exile his song ... Since then, this song sounds everywhere scattered among all the countries of white fighters for the honor and freedom of Russia ...
You swept snow, Russia / Zapurzhilo a gray blizzard, / And the cold winds of the steppe, / Requiem sung over you.
No way, no trace of the plains, / By the boundless snow drifts. / Do not get to his family shrines, / Do not listen to native voices.
swept, skidded zapurzhilo / All holy gray blizzard. / Thou blind cold force / You like death, lifeless snow.
You swept snow, Russia / Zapurzhilo a gray blizzard, / And the cold winds of the steppe, / Requiem sung over you ... (p. 279)
Lieutenant Regiment Genkin Drozdowski wrote ... for the holiday Christmas poem "Guiding Star":
Our holiday ... far ... ... Former / Snow drifts on the river ice rink ... ... / rosy cheeks, fingers frozen, / Mother pale stern rebuke.
Time is short even before Christmas Eve, / days if in fairytale gone ... / seen everything from the nearest spruce / Yolka brought yesterday.
on the tree will be handed out gifts to all, / how much joy! In the bitter cold / With dark sky covered by stars, / Christ descended quietly ...
With this naive, childlike faith / left in a blizzard and a snowstorm ... / take away the joy - a soldier's gray / in the old patched cloak.
To take away the joy of the trenches, battle / explosions of shells, shooting, gun ... / We had one consolation - / All for Russia and all of the people.
All of a sudden unexpected blizzards whirled ... / All it skidded - and fields and forests. / And in Russia, sick and abused, / Death band passed.
Life was with such a bifurcated, / Rodina back there ... / Throughout the world scattered warriors / With an eternal hope in the breast.
Let the cold Christmas night / In the heart of sadness will dissipate: / From childhood, we shining star guiding / Our Holy Great Russia!
For Drozdovtsev and to this day the Holy Great Russia - a guiding star ... (p. 258) Nearly three years continued the heroic struggle of the white with red in the south of Russia, and in this struggle Drozdovtsy passed triumphant march without losing morale even in the days our failures. (P. 361)

The entire area in front of the church and all the surrounding streets were covered with a crowd of thousands. The sun was setting, the evening came, and updated white dome shining golden color.
