II. Historical background and famous historical figures


The beginning of the story Starokulatkinsky district of Ulyanovsk region dates from the late XVII and early XVIII centuries. The territory of the district previously included in land Khvalynsky district, Saratov region.

Strengthening adjacent borders of the Russian state, King Peter I at the end of XVII century began to carry out policy of settling of edge people of the Tatar origin. They were aliens from Temnikov, Tambov region, Simbirsk and Kazan, one way or another connected with military service in the tsarist troops.

Kulatka village was inhabited in several stages, in 1704-1718. Populated Murza (Murza equated to the rank of officer of the Royal army) with his entourage. Virgin land, located on the territory of the district, the MPD received in exchange for the service, and the greater was the merit of the nobleman to the Motherland, the more land he received.

Tatar cavalry troops, where they served murzas with their relatives and friends, actively participated in the Azov campaigns, in the suppression of the Bashkir rebels, the Northern war against the Swedes, the battle of Poltava (1709). All these people basically laid the Foundation of the population Kulatka parish - sat Staraya Kulatka (now Novaya Kulatka), Ust Kulatka and Novaya Yandovka (now Novaya Yandovka).

Since 1720, the Murza, serving Tatars began to lose their advantages. The reason for this was the decree of the king, who forbade the murzas, served Tatars to hold as serfs of the Christian faith. If  before the adoption of the decree for the assigned land paid a small yasak (tax), now it was replaced by a per capita tax, which is very difficult to accept privileged nobility. In fact, they were equated to the taxable population. The privileged position of serving the Moors and Tatars finally abolished with the introduction of per capita taxation when they are on a par with yasak recorded in the list of taxable poll tax, therefore, added to the taxable estate. Since that time, the situation of most murzas and Tatars did not differ from that of state peasants. Gradually, the excessive amount of taxes did their job - Murza, sultans and other serving Tatars finally broke down and became simple state peasants. Only a small portion of the MPD and other servicemen Tatars, mostly in the Cheaper, avoided the transition to the ranks of the state peasants, or the tax-paying class, having taken Russian names. Thus, at the end of the XVIII century private nobleman's already Russian names were - Bogdanov, Bogdalov, Davydov, Kutuzov, but their number was small and of these nobles, they were not, because of serfdom, its legal, economic relations were strangling any manifestation of progressive initiatives. Gradually the vast majority of Tatars became tillers.

Virgin land gave great yields, was fertile, and the peasants were mainly engaged in bakery, raised cattle. However, the source of life for many was to serve in the Imperial army (as it was called until the late nineteenth century regular army of Peter the great).

After the abolition of serfdom everywhere in the Volga region, including in the territory of our district there is a revival of the economy, which caused the need for the organization of fairs. There was also the development of individual fisheries. Many peasants went to trade. In the second half of the nineteenth century widespread in the oldest the Cheaper, the center of the municipality, received the blacksmith's craft lies in making different kind of house accessory: door and window hinges, hooks, linings, locks, seized on, axes, shovels, etc. On the banks of the river Kulatka constructed dozens of smithies, the whole dynasty was engaged in the blacksmith's craft. Widespread in the Old Atlases got furrier craft, furriers started doing this kind of sheepskin and lambskin that demand exceeded supply. At the same time developing the saddlery business and tailoring, these crafts were developed in the Staryi Mostyak, Novaya Kulatka, Bakhteevka. In 1889 on the banks of the river Kulatka about Novaya Kulatka was built by the Saratov businessman, the native of the village, a soap factory producing soap. The success was great and the products were bought both inside and outside the parish. The plant was closed due to the beginning of the first world war. Flour milling got its development in the settlements of Staraya  Kulatka, Novaya Kulatka, Bakhteevka, Srednyaya Tereshka. Thus, in the second half of nineteenth century, especially in the third his-quarters, beginnings of capitalist relations gradually lay in rural life.

At the beginning of 1917 in 29 settlements townships (the area of today's Starokulatkinsky district) lived more than 50 thousand people (according to the materials of Saratov Khvalynsk archive and Museum). By this time, among the Tatar, the Chuvash and the Mordovian population of the district was complete delamination. Appeared rich in the face of so-called kulaks or rural bourgeoisie. Landless, horseless peasants were called hired laborers, differently- laborers. In 1911, Starokulatkinsky parish bloodless, horseless peasant households was 25% of the total number, and the beginning of the February revolution, their number reached 40%. In 1910-1911, the poor had to be very tight, in these years there was drought, famine and numerous diseases (medical care was practically absent, all settlements had two paramedics) mowing people.

That is why the ideas of the October revolution fell on fertile ground and the people with great enthusiasm took the revolution. It is necessary to emphasize the fact that the establishment of a new government in the territory of the region was largely peaceful, without armed conflict, although the kulaks hid, adopting a waiting policy.

In the civil war, on all fronts, attended by 3,600 people from all the villages Starokulatkinsky, Staroatlashsky, Srednetereshansky, Starolebezhaysky counties. Many of them were not destined to return home. Starokulatkinsky fought in the legendary Chapaev, Simbirsk Zheleznaya divisions, Tatar regiments and brigades.

By the end of 1920, there was a process of unification of individual farms in the farm, and some craftsmen-nuggets have cooperated in the field. However, the first world war, then the civil war finally destroyed the economic ties in the country, provinces, parishes and villages. Economic chaos and mismanagement reigned everywhere. The village lost in these wars the most physically strong and capable men. Many peasant families were left without draft power - horses and bulls. However, life has not stood still, with great effort, the peasants began to establish their farms and the economy began to revive.

In the years of collectivization there was a mass generalization of horses, cows, household equipment. By the end of 1929, each village had several collective farms, over time they were United, enlarged. By this time, comes the formation of Starokulatkinsky district.

Many talented, deserving nurtured Starokulatkinsky earth. Many residents, natives of the Starokulatkinsky district for their outstanding achievements in many branches of national economy were awarded orders and medals, received the title of honored workers of culture and education, health and agriculture, etc. Many Starokulatkinsky become scientists, specialists of high class.
