General Artúr Görgei, the commander of the Hungarian Felduna Army, was generally loved and trusted by his subordinates early Summer 1849. His decisions were questioned neither by his officers nor his men. Still, on 20 June 1849, at the end of the first day of the Battle of Pered, when he removed Colonel Lajos Asbóth, the commander of the II Corps from his position, several high ranking officers of the corps also resigned, and two days later the officers paid respect to their former leader by releasing a document that might even be interpreted as a “protest” against the main commander’s decision. This study examines the circumstances of the creation of this document (and its copy), and its afterlife. Meanwhile, it also discusses the career of Lajos Asbóth, the brilliant, but somewhat extravagant officer, with a special focus on the military operations at the river Vág in June 1849, especially his performance on the first day of the Pered, which resulted in his removal and the creation of the document. Finally, the appendix contains the text of the original document, as well as the copy made by Asbóth.
