Bandırma Ferry Steamer

The "Bandırma" ferry was a small boat built in Paisley, England. The steamer, which once belonged to a British company, was first named "Trokodero" then "Kymi" and it became "Pandarme" after a Greek from Istanbul purchased it. Finally, the steamer was named "Bandırma" when it passed to Seyr-i Sefain (Ottoman Maritime Lines). 

On Monday morning, 19 May 1919 at 08:15, the "Bandırma" ferry steamer anchored at Dil Dock, Samsun. Mustafa Kemal Pasha and his companions-at-arms boarded single¬masted boats and went ashore at the Dil Dock (Reji), built by the French. Today the First Step (ilk Adım)

Monument stands there, between Samsun Grand Hotel and Yaşar Doğu Sport Center.

Nobody knew that this young general landing in Samsun on 19 May 1919 was going to start the Independence movement. His official duty was to put order to and gain control of revolutionary gangs in and around Samsun. His official title was Inspector of the Army.

More About Middle East

Modern civilization began right here in the Tigris-Euphrates river valley. Also known as the Fertile Crescent or Mesopotamia, this is the place where, six thousand years ago, agriculture, writing and mathematics were brought into widespread use.The term "Middle East" comes from the British navy, which used it to describe the countries on the trade route from Europe to India and China. Everything from Afghanistan to Morocco may possibly be classified as "middle eastern", depending on whom you ask -- and when.Only a partial list of past Empires in the middle eastern territory includes Sumeria, Babylonia, Persia, the Ottoman Empire and the Roman Empire!When northern Europe was still lurking about in slimy cold stone castles playing chess, the Middle East was enjoying the flowers of poetry, luxurious craftsmanship, music and literature. In fact, the Renaissance in Europe was partly inspired by stories brought back from the middle east by travelers along the trade route.Strategic location, religious history and the world's largest supply of crude oil have kept the Middle East at the center of world activity for centuries. The saga continues.Text by Steve Smith.
