History of Imotski_____
The region of Imotski County has been populated in the Neolithic age. At the time of Illyrians and Romans, it was known as "Emotha" and later "Imota". Today's name first mentioned it by Byzantine Emperor Constantin Porphyrogennetos in the 10th century. In medieval historical sources, it was mentioned as a famous fortress. The fortress above the town, Topana, was first mentioned in the 9th century, in the times of Croatian sovereigns.
Imotski was held by the Turks from the fall of Bosnia in 1492 until 1717 when the Venetians captured it. In April 1717, a small church, dedicated to the Lady of Angels, was built in honour of the victory against the Ottomans. The Lady of Angels has since then been honoured as patroness of Imotski and Imotski region.
The Hasanaginica folk ballad was created in the Imotski region in the mid 17th century.
In 1912, a secondary school was built in Imotski when the town was part of the Kingdom of Dalmatia within the Austro-Hungarian empire.
From 1941 to 1945 Imotski was part of the Independent State of Croatia. In April 1944, German forces shot down three American B-24s. The local population saved many of the American personnel despite being bombed by them. One airman/paratrooper, Marion Dropulich (Marijan Dropuljić) who crashed near Imotski, but survived and was taken by Italian Soldiers happened to have been a Croatian American with immediate Imotski ancestry.
