"Sisingamangaraja XII was a true warrior, who did not believe in colonization and slavery. He was a fighter, who did not want to compromise with the colonizers, even though he was offered to become the Sultan of Batak. He preferred to be dead, instead of being submitted to the colonizers. He was a knight who did not want to betray his own nation for the sake of a superior power. He fought until the end of his life."
