The Independence Day (Bulgarian National Holiday)
On September 22, 1908, Bulgaria declared its full independence from Ottoman control. Signing the Bulgarian Declaration of Independence nullified the harmful clauses of the Treaty of Berlin under which the greater part of the railway lines in Southern Bulgaria were under the regimen of capitulations (as Turkey's property) which entailed the payment of an annual tax to Turkey. After the Treaty of Berlin (1878) Macedonia remained under Ottoman rule, while after the wars and the peace treaties (Bucharest, 1913, and Neuilly, 1919) the greater part of it was incorporated into Serbia and Greece. The idea of the national unification of the Bulgarians was fatally doomed, mostly by the policy of the imperialist diktat, but for those affected it was impossible to abandon it. An armed struggle began which in its content, organizational methods and purposes was a continuation of the Bulgarian national-liberation movement of the 70s of the 19th century. However, the Ottoman rulers were pushed out of Macedonia and Adrianople Thrace not by means of a democratic revolution but through Bulgaria's, Serbia's, Greece's and Montenegro's military might in the First Balkan war of 1912.
