Post  ebeli on Fri Mar 04, 2011 9:35 pm

San Martin was born in Argentina but his parents were from Spain. He went to Europe for military training and education. San Martin helped Argentina win freedom in 1816 from the Spanish people. He then helped get independence in other areas. He led an army across the Andes, which it was from Argentina into Chile. He after went to Peru; he wanted to help get their independence. His military group was very small compared to the Spanish military group, so he asks Bolivar for some help. They both tried to work things together but they had different goals and their views were different. He left from Peru, letting Bolivar’s forces to fight against the Spanish and get Peru independence. He went back to Europe. Rolling Eyes Razz
