Indian wars in Paraguay Tuesday, 1/2/07, 10:23 AM
¿During the annual monsoons flotillas of gold- miners traveled the bloated rivers, but in 1725 the Paiagua annihilated a convoy of two hundred people near the mouth of the Chanes River. They continued to attack each year, and a major battle took place in June 1730 when 400 people from Cuiaba transporting 60 arrobas (900 kilos) of gold were ambushed by hundreds of Paiagua; the battle lasted 29 hours, and most in the flotilla were killed. King Joao V issued proclamations of a just war and authorized the enslavement of captives, and in 1734 Manoel Ruiz de Carvalho led 842 men in 28 war- canoes from Cuiaba. After killing forty Paiagua sentries in their camp, they ambushed the Paiagua using 200 muskets. They slaughtered 600 Paiagua and sent 240 captives to be slaves in the mines. Yet during the 1735 monsoon the Paiagua killed or captured all but four people in a convoy of fifty canoes. The attacks became less frequent, but they went on until the 1780s when a few remaining Paiaguas took refuge with the Spaniards on an island reservation near Asuncion¿

The Ecuadorean revolt 1820 ¿ 1. Wednesday, 3/22/06, 9:52 AM
The Division Protectora de Quito, under the command of Colonel Luis Urdaneta, began its advance out of the coastal plain towards the Highlands, and pushed back a Royalist covering force on November 9, 1820, at Camino Real, a strategic mountain pass along the road from Guayaquil to Guaranda. An army of around 5,000 troops, under the command of veteran Spanish Colonel Francisco González, was dispatched south to deal with the 2,000 troops-strong patriot army, now in Ambato. In the Battle of Huachi, on November 22, 1820, the Royalist army inflicted a severe defeat on Urdaneta's force, which had to fall back to Babahoyo, on the coastal plains. The Spanish army continued its advance south, towards Cuenca, retaking towns along the way. On December 20, 1820, after the defenders of the city were defeated at the Battle of Verdeloma, Cuenca was retaken by the Royalist army. The authorities in Guayaquil desperately organized reinforcements -300 men altogether, including some 50 cavalry-, ordering it to make a final stand at Babahoyo. As the Royalist army didn't seem inclined to come down to the plains to meet them, the patriots sent some guerrilla bands back into the highlands, who were ambushed and massacred on January 3, 1821 at the Battle of Tanizagua. In February, 1821, the foreign aid requested by the Junta de Guayaquil finally materialized under General José Mires, sent by General Simón Bolívar, President of Colombia. Mires brought along with him 1,000 muskets; 50,000 musket rounds; 500 sabers, and 100 pairs of pistols. Mires¿ instructions were to liberate Quito. Bolívar would begin a simultaneous campaign from the north. Bolívar's right-hand man, Antonio José de Sucre, arrived in Guayaquil, bringing with him 700 reinforcements. By July, 1821, Sucre, around Babahoyo, was ready to advance on the highlands as soon as the weather allowed. Aymerich pre-empted this with a pincer movement: he would lead his Army from Guaranda down to Babahoyo, while Colonel González, coming from the southern highlands down to Yaguachi, would attack the flank. Sucre, privy to Aymerich's intentions thanks to a well-developed espionage network, sent Mires to deal with González. The encounter, which ended up destroying Gonzalez's force, took place near the town of Cone, on August 19, 1821. Upon hearing the news, Aymerich retraced his steps and headed back to the highlands. Sucre advanced up to the highlands, his main force occupying Guaranda on September 2, 1821. Aymerich moved to block any further progress, and in the Second Battle of Huachi, which took place on September 12, 1821, annihilated Sucre's infantry. The patriot forces lost 800 men, mostly killed, plus 50 prisoners, among them General Mires. As Second Huachi had also taken a heavy toll on the Royalists, Aymerich decided against exploiting his victory with an advance on the coastal plains. On November 19, 1821, a 90-day armistice was signed at Babahoyo.

The South American Wars of Liberation Thursday, 10/24/02, 12:13 PM
In the first three decades of the 19th century, a series of campaigns were fought in South America which ended Spain's empire there. Spain's control of its overseas provinces was total, in both political and mercantile matters, but the revolutions in America and France at the end of the 18th century showed the peoples of South America the possibilities of taking control of their own destinies. Spain's grip on its colonies began to slip as it became caught up in the schemes of Napoleon, and revolutionary juntas began to take control of some of the colonies, and plan the liberation of others.
