Argentine general, leader of Unitarian forces against Rosas, 1797-1841

Fishburn and Hughes: An Argentine hero, born into an aristocratic porteño family, who fought with San Martín in the war of Independence, and with Alvear in the war against Brazil. In 1828 Lavalle was elected by the Unitarians as their military leader against the Federalist movement. A Biography of Tadeo Isidoro Cruz (1829-1874): the gaucho militia (Montoneros) mentioned here would have been followers of Rosas who, when he was defeated by Lavalle in 1828, escaped in disguise with some of his troops to join Estanislao López, the caudillo of the Santa Fe province. Lavalle was eventually defeated by the combined forces of Rosas and López on 26 April 1829. After ten years of exile in Montevideo he reluctantly returned to lead the Unitarian forces in another attempt to oust Rosas; he fought against Rosas and Oribe when a revolt broke out in the province of Buenos Aires and the port was blockaded by the French. On 2 September 1839 Lavalle allied his forces to those of the French, and his army of 550 men, embarked in French boats, landed near Gualeguay and was involved in a series of military encounters. The Elderly Lady: the 'sabrefest' is probably the battle of Cagancha on 29 December 1839, in which Lavalle's party was victorious. The revolt was soon crushed and the blockade lifted. Lavalle did not attempt to enter the city. In 1840 he was defeated by Oribe at Quebracho Herrado and died soon after in Jujuy. A Biography of Tadeo Isidoro Cruz (1829-1874); The Elderly Lady
