Fishburn and Hughes: "The sight of a battle fought on 12 February 1817, sixty miles north of Santiago, where San Martín, commanding the Army of the Andes, defeated the Royal forces led by Francisco Marco del Pont, the Governor of Chile. San Martín then acquired a base on the Pacific, from which he later fought for Peru." (44)
