Very little is known about the participation of the romanian people of Zarand to the achievement of the Great Union of 1918. The discovery and the publication of some inedited documents of various archives funds from Deva put in a new light the activ role of the people of Zarand in the revolution of 1918 and in the participation, at 1 December 1918, to the Grand National Assembly of Alba Iulia.
Hundreds of soldiers return from the front have joined in the formations of the Romanian National Guards and helped to maintain order, defending the civil supplies against any action of theft or destruction. A large number of residents of Zarand villages, led by priests and teachers of their localities, has attended the meeting at Alba Iulia.
