On April 19 Mustafa Kemal established his divisional headquarters in this village.  The place where the headquarters was located is today just outside the village, at the site known as Değirmen (The Mill).  Mustafa led his troops on military excercises in and around Bigali throughout the following week, retiring each night to a village house now known as the "Atatürk House" just off the village square.
