Many of the Decembrists were intellectuals and members of the middle class, and consequently their arrival had a positive effect.According to George Kennan, "Among the exiles in Chita were some of the brightest, most cultivated, most sympathetic men and women that we had met in Eastern Siberia."Chita was granted town status on July 11, 1851.
