Monument of the Greater Poland Insurgent on the market square in Pleszew.
The monument was created in 2018 on the occasion of the hundredth anniversary of the Greater Poland Uprising. It depicts an insurgent pinning a saber and preparing to go out to the uprising, and his son bidding him farewell, giving his father a gorget. On the pavement, next to the figures, we can see the inscription: "Nobody told them to go ... they went - because they wanted to" - which is a fragment of a song by Edward Soniski. The creator of the monument is the sculptor Grzegorz Godawa from Pozna. The sculpture was cast in bronze at Juliusz Kwieciski's "Bronzeart" factory in Pleszew.

Pleszew is a town in central Poland, in Greater Poland Voivodeship, about 30 km nord of Ostrw Wielkoipolski. It is the capital of Pleszew County.
