In the spring of 1903, Lazaros, after a command from Bishop Germanos Karavaggelis, successfully ensured the smooth entry in the area of the Ottoman Empire of the first fighters from Creta. In July 1903, broke the Ilinden Uprising, for which Lazaros Tsamis had already informed the Greek Consular authorities in Bitola. Along with his brother Papastavros and other members of the defense committee of the village of Pisoderi, prevented the participation of the village residents and protected in this way the settlement from the reprisals of the Ottoman Army, after the suppression of the revolution. The same did not apply to other villages and towns, such as Kruševo of Pelagonia.

village of Prespa, belonging to Lazaros Tsamis.
