Origin[edit | edit source]

José Francisco de San Martín y Matorras (1778 - 1850) was an Argentine general and the prime leader of the southern part of South America's successful struggle for independence from the Spanish Empire. After taking part in the Peninsular War against France in 1808, San Martin contacted South American supporters to aid in the independence from Spain. Successful campaigns he fought include the Battle of San Lorenzo, the Battle of Chacabuco and the Battle of Maipu, the later liberating Chile from royalist rule. After that he sailed with his Army of the North, to attack the Spanish stronghold of Lima, Peru. After independence was declared in 1822 San Martin was declared the Protector of Peru. Unlike most generals San Martin led from the front battling alongside of his men. Historians discovered and translated letters from his men proclaiming his amazing skills, a few mentioned they swore that he took fatal stabs but kept fighting.

Effects[edit | edit source]
