Item description for El Chacho - Ultimo caudillo de la montonera de los llanos (Spanish Edition) by Domingo F. Sarmiento...

In Spanish

Domingo F. Sarmientos book about general Angel Vicente Pealoza, the "Chacho", must be counted among the testimonies on the difficulties all too frequently encountered by "civilization" when, in the need to interact with "barbarism" , puts its civilized condition at stakes.

In 1862, by the time Sarmiento was appointed Governor of the Argentine province of San Juan, the vast zone was still harassed by the "montoneras" hordes of former "Federal" irregular troops, which had not been able to accept the peace agreements between the "Unitarians" of Buenos Aires, led by Bartolome Mitre, and the "Federals" of Urquiza, who represented the provinces.

Sarmientos position was not an easy one: his closest friend Aberastain, who had preceeded him as San Juan Governor, had been murdered by Juan Saas cronies, another montonero Chieftain appointed as the San Luis neighbouring province Governor.

General Bartolome Mitres political move was a wise one: by sending Sarmiento, a San Juan born highly prestigious person with a distinct regard for individual rights, he secured both the support of the locals and the contribution of an unflenching fighter for the "civilization" cause.

At the time of Pealozas capture Sarmiento was no longer responsible for the "police" campaign against the montoneras, but nevertheless the fact that he received in San Juan with honors the man who had shot Pealoza dead without a proper trial, added to some previous letters written in pain and anger after Aberastains murder, decided President Mitre to ask for his resignation and appoint him ambassador to the United States in order to get Sarmiento out of the way..

Actually this ended up as an unsuspected gift, as Sarmiento returned to Argentina to as President elected "in absentia" to lead one of the most progressive periods of the argentine history.

This book, altogether with "Facundo, or civilization and barbarism", represents the regard of a extraordinarily intelligent person constrained by his civilized manners over two of the most prominent "barbarians" of his times.
