Where is the village of otachnitsa located? I haven't been able to find much on it from google searches, aside from this article. It probably doesn't exist anymore.

Wikipaedia lists all the villages in bulgaria under provinces.You would need to know the province .probably doesn't exist.

There is one way to try and track down the location of this village, and that is from the Austrian Military Map of the Balkans from 1910. Check the below link, but it may take some time. If it can be narrowed down to northern, western, etc Macedonian territory, it will help.

Not only the last one, the first event should be related with the rivalry between the ones who supports Sandanski and pro-Sofia Vurkhovists.

As you know, Sandanski`s faction was supporting autonomous Macedonia from day one but Vurkhovists was under the command of Tsar Ferdinand and the Russians, supporting greater Bulgaria which includes Macedonia. I am not sure about the date but i guess in 1909, Vurkhovists tried to assassinate Sandanski too, leaving him severely injured at that time.

Vurkhovist`s village raids was so common in Macedonia `till the Balkan wars and they were trying to force people to support Macedonia`s annexation to Bulgaria. Also, Greek bandits was doing the same in Aegean side in favor of Greece. Sandanski was even thinking about saving Bulgaria from Russian yoke and creating some kind of republican Balkan federation along with Young Turks. His motto was like "To hell with Tsars and Sultans, the people themselves should be the rulers"

Onur, both the internal and external factions of the Macedonian Revolutionary Organisation carried out raids against the Ottomans and their supporters in Macedonia. And the notion of vrhovisti being pro-unification and vnatresni being pro-autonomy is not always black and white. There were several Macedonians who could be considered as a part of the vrhovisti 'clique' that also supported an independent Macedonian state and people.
