Revolution, crossing the Andes
Buenos Aires, 1880. In a pension a journalist interviews one of the men that are still alive who crossed the Andes with José Francisco de San Martín. Manuel Esteban de Corvalán was 15 years old back then and because he was able to read and write, he became one of his secretaries. Corvalán tells the journalist the story of the crossing, its difficulties and adventures, of his comrades and San Martín, the man who succeeded in carrying out that tour de force. José de San Martín is considered one of the most important men of the revolution, who, with his soldiers, succeeded in liberating part of the continent of Spanish domination.
The crossing of the Andes mountain range is considered to be one of the greatest milestones of Argentinean history, especially of the Independence Wars, as also being one of the most important heroic deeds in universal military history. General José de San Martín and his army crossed the Andes from the Cuyo region to Chile in order to confront the troops of the Spanish crown who were located there.
