They are Serbians and Bulgarians! Not Macedonians!

The original Book of Misirkov in Bulgarian language.

http://www.wikiwak.com/image/Misirkov-ZaMaked...

Some villages have Serbian schools and some have Bulgarian schools.

"..in the towns Serbian schools can be found alongside the Bulgarian boys' and girls' elementary and grammar schools. Some villages have Serbian schools and some have Bulgarian schools. Some villagers, along with their teachers and priests, recognize the Patriarchate and come under the protection of the Serbian or Greek consul, while others recognize the Bulgarian Exarchate and place themselves under the authority of the Bulgarian trade representatives."-Misirko v Krste

Misirkov Krste: "Some villages have Serbian schools and some have Bulgarian schools."

The army of Alexander was instrument which he inherited from his father Filip the II.

Its core was composed of the Macedonian peasantry (Peshatari) who served on foot in heavy armour (Foot-companions).
They formed the phalanx, and were divided into 6 brigades (Taxis), probably on the 'territorial' system .
Their distinctive arm was the great Macedonian pike (sarissa), some 14 ft. long, of further reach than the ordinary Greek spear. They were normally drawn up in more open order than the heavy Greek phalanx, and possessed thereby a mobility and elasticity in which the latter was fatally deficient .
Reckoning 1,500 to- each brigade, we got a total for the phalanx of 9,000 men .

Of higher rank than the peshetari were the royal foot-guards (Hypastits), some 3,000 in number, more lightly armed, and distinguished (at any rate at the time of Alexander's death) by silver shields (Argyrastits).
Of these 1,000 constituted the royal corps Agema.

The Macedonian cavalry was recruited from a higher grade of society than the infantry, the petite noblesse of the nation.
They bore by old custom the name of the King's Companions (Heroi), and were distributed into 8 territorial squadrons [Hipar;(1Hipar = 8 Ilai, Ilai = 64 men formation)] of probably some 250 men each, making a normal total of 2,000.
In the cavalry also the most privileged squadron (Hippar) bore the name of the Agema .

The ruder peoples which were neighbors to the Macedonians (Paeonians, Agrianes, Thracians) furnished contingents of light cavalry (sarissaheroi) and javeliners (lucovrLai).
From the Thessalians the Macedonian king, as overlord, drew some thousand excellent troopers .

The rest of Alexander's army was composed of City-states mercenaries, NOT FORMALLY HIS SUBJECTS .
These served partly as mercenaries, partly in contingents contributed by the states in virtue of their alliance.
According to Diodorus (xvii .17, 3) at the time of Alexander's passage into Asia, the mercenaries numbered 5,000, and the troops of the alliance 7,000 foot and 600 horse (prodrumoi).

All these numbers take no account of the troops left behind in Macedonia, 12,000 foot and 1,500 horse, according to Diodorus .
