Voivode in Loznica, 1807
Bogičević had joined the rebels during the early stages of the
Serbian uprising, and helped to gather as many arms as possible.
He proved himself to be very skilled in battle and in fending off Turkish
attacks which were launched frequently against Loznica. He distinguished
himself against the Turks to liberate Radjevina and Jadar in 1807 and
was made a voivode in Loznica. He was most prominent in the battle
for Loznica in 1810 where he led the Serbian army to victory against the
Turks. After his death, his tomb was desecrated by the Turks and
his body mutilated and thrown into the Stira River. His remains
were later retired and reburied. His was succeeded as voivode by
his son Bogosav.
