Bolivia History

The Spanish conquest began in 1524 and was for all practical purposes completed by 1533. The territory now called Bolivia was then known as Upper Peru"" and was under the authority of the Viceroy of Lima. Local government came from the Audiencia de Charcas located in Chuquisaca. By the late 16th century Bolivian silver was an important source of revenue for the Spanish empire. A steady stream of natives served as labor force. As Spanish royal authority weakened during the Napoleonic wars, sentiment against colonial rule grew."

The struggle for independence started in 1809, and after 16 years of war the republic was proclaimed on August 6, 1825, named for Simn Bolvar.

In 1836, Bolivia, under the rule of Marshal Andres de Santa Cruz, invaded Peru to reinstall the deposed president, General Luis Orbegoso. Peru and Bolivia formed the Peru-Bolivian Confederation, with de Santa Cruz as the Supreme Protector. Following tensions between the Confederation and Chile, Chile declared war on December 28, 1836. Argentina, Chile's ally, declared war on the Confederation on May 9, 1837. The Peruvian-Bolivian forces achieved several major victories: the defeat of the Argentinian expedition and the defeat of the first Chilean expedition on the fields of Paucarpata near the city of Arequipa.

On the same field the Paucarpata Treaty was signed with the unconditional surrender of the Chilean and Peruvian rebel army. The treaty stipulated that Chile withdraw from Peru-Bolivia, return captured Confederate ships, economic relations would be normalized, and the Confederation would pay Peruvian debt to Chile. Public outrage over the treaty forced the government to reject it. Chile organized a second attack on the Confederation, and defeated it on the fields of Yungay using the same arms and equipment Santa Cruz had allowed them to retain. After this defeat, Santa Cruz fled to Ecuador, and the Peruvian-Bolivian Confederation was dissolved.

Following the independence of Peru, General Gamarra, the Peruvian president, invaded Bolivia, under the Peruvian flag. The Peruvian army was decisively defeated at the Battle of Ingav on November 20, 1841, where Gamarra was killed. The Bolivian army under General Jos Ballivin then mounted a counter-offensive managing to capture the Peruvian port of Arica. Later, both sides signed a peace in 1842 putting a final end to the war.
