The liberation of the planet Taris was one of the last battles of the Mandalorian Wars. Republic forces freed Taris from Mandalorian control, and pushed on towards the main Mandalorian strongholds beyond the Republic in the Outer Rim.
Additionally, the Republic drove the criminal Exchange corporation from Taris, at least temporarily, freeing the slaves held by both the Exchange and the Mandalorians. Revan personally freed a young Cathar named Juhani. It was this act of kindness and nobility that convinced Juhani to attempt training as a Jedi Knight.
