History

In the 19th century Ottoman Macedonia, Mogila was known as a village in the district of Bitola with a large population of "Komiti" or Macedonian freedom fighters. In 1900, Mogila had 850 residents.

In the late 19th century and early 20th century the village became involved in the struggle of the Internal Macedonian Revolutionary Organization against Ottoman rule. On May 8, 1903, the home of local revolutionary Nikola Meshkov, a member of Parashkev Tsvetkov's band, was raided by Ottoman forces, and in the ensuing battle three men and two women were killed[1].
