Sarel Cilliers was ‘n baie bekende Voortrekker wat oorspronklik in die Paarl gewoon het. Hy is gebore op die plaas Schoongezicht in Dal Josaphat op 7.9.1801. in 1836 het Cilliers met vrou en 6 kinders by die Potgieter-trek laat aansluit. Hy was daarvan oortuig dat dit God se wil is dat hy moes trek. Cilliers word ook deur sommige as die ‘vader van die Gelofte’ beskou wat die Voortrekkers afgelê het voor die Slag van Bloedrivier wat op 16.12.1838 plaasgevind het.

Op versoek van die Volksraad is die Paardekraal Monument op die koppie op Paardekraal opgerig en President Paul Kruger het dit op 16 Desember 1891 tydens ‘n Gelofte en Verootmoedigingsfees onthul. Hierdie dag was uiters gedenkwaardig aangesien dit die eerste Volksfees/Paardekraalfees was, waarop die Slag van Bloedrivier weer deur die boerevolk herdenk is. Van hierdie dag af vorentoe het Paardekraal Monument ‘n dubbele betekenis gekry, naamlik ‘n besonderse verbintenis met die gelofte van… Most Beautiful Beaches, Beautiful Places, Places Worth Visiting, Beaches In The World, My Land, Its A Wonderful Life, African History, South Africa, Cool Stuff
