A history of the site where redoubt no. 54, made famous to Polish culture owing to Adam Mickiewicz's poem 'Reduta Ordona' (Ordon's Redoubt), was apparently located during the Warsaw Battle of September 1831. One is accustomed to believe that the piece has more fabrication to it than historic truth. However, comparison of topographic details with the poet's text indicates that Mickiewicz's portrayal of topographic details is surprisingly true. However, owing to the terrain's character and complications of historical memory, it has become highly complicated to find actual traces of the site where one of the most important Polish heroic myths was conceived.
