A monument commemorates Dragoljub "Draza" Mihailović (27 April 1893 – 17 July 1946) who was a Yugoslav Serbian general during World War Two.

A staunch royalist, Draza retreated to the mountains near Belgrade when the Germans overran Yugoslavia in April 1941 and there he organized bands of guerrillas known as the Chetnik Detachments of the Yugoslav Army. The organisation is commonly known as the Chetniks, although the name of the organisation was later changed to the Yugoslav Army in the Homeland.  Founded as a royalist/nationalist Serbian resistance movement, it was the first Yugoslav resistance movement to be formed, followed shortly by Josip Broz Tito's Partisans.
