1851 in Argentina

Events in the year 1851 in Argentina.

Antonio González de Balcarce

Antonio González de Balcarce (June 24, 1774 – August 15, 1819) was an Argentine military commander in the early 19th century.

González de Balcarce was born in Buenos Aires. He joined the armed forces as a cadet in 1788. In the battle for Montevideo in 1807, he was captured by the British forces and taken to England. After his release, he fought in the service of Spain during the Peninsular War against the Emperor Napoleon. Returning to Buenos Aires, he participated in the May Revolution in 1810. Subsequently, he was named second commander for the military campaign of the independentist forces in the Viceroyalty of Perú, where he won the Battle of Suipacha on November 7, 1810, the first victory over the Spanish royal forces.Eventually, he was called back and became the Governor of Buenos Aires Province in 1813. In 1816, he served as the Supreme Director of the United Provinces of the Río de la Plata ad interim, and became the Major General of the armed forces the following year under the government of Juan Martín de Pueyrredón. According to historian William Denslow, Antonio Balcarce was a member of the well-known masonic lodge Lautaro. He took part of the crossing of the Andes to Chile and was San Martin's second-in-command during the battles of Cancha Rayada and Maipu.

He fell ill in Chile and had to return to Buenos Aires, where he died in 1819.

Argentine Confederation

The Argentine Confederation (Spanish: Confederación Argentina) is one of the official names of Argentina according to the Argentine Constitution, Article 35. It was the name of the country from 1831 to 1852, when the provinces were organized as a confederation without a head of state. The governor of Buenos Aires Province (Juan Manuel de Rosas during most of the period) managed foreign relations during this time. Under his rule, the Argentine Confederation resisted attacks by Brazil, Bolivia, Uruguay, France and the UK, as well as other Argentine factions during the Argentine Civil Wars.

Rosas was ousted from power in 1852 by Justo José de Urquiza, after the battle of Caseros. Urquiza convened the 1853 Constituent Assembly to write a national constitution. Buenos Aires resisted Urquiza and seceded from the Confederation in 1852, becoming the State of Buenos Aires; the province would return to Argentina in 1861.

Battle of Márquez Bridge

The Battle of Márquez Bridge (located on the border between current-day Villa Udaondo and Paso del Rey, Buenos Aires Province, Argentina), fought on 26 April 1829, during the civil war between Unitarians and Federalists, resulting in a victory for the Federal Party forces of Juan Manuel de Rosas and the governor of Santa Fe Province, Estanislao López, over general Juan Lavalle, who had usurped the office of Governor of Buenos Aires Province.

Carlos Auyero

Carlos Auyero (1936 – 18 April 1997) was an Argentine politician. He was leader of the Christian Democratic Party and played a major role in the formation of the centre-left coalition FrePaSo.

At 25 years old, Auyero was elected as a provincial deputy in Buenos Aires Province, having gained his doctorate in law. In 1973 he was elected as a national deputy. After the return of democracy in the 1980s he became leader of the Christian Democratic Party (PDC) and helped create the Frente Renovador with Peronists which saw Antonio Cafiero elected as governor of Buenos Aires Province and Auyero returned to the lower house of Congress in 1985.

Auyero was vice-president of the Christian Democrat Organization of America (ODCA) and played a role in the Christian Democrat International.

Despite being leader of the PDC, Auyero had opposed the party's 1989 alliance with Carlos Menem, which had been voted for narrowly by members, and Menem's pursuit of neo-liberal economic policies. He led his grouping, 'Humanism and Liberation', into a new party formed with activist Graciela Fernández Meijide, Popular Democracy, which then joined with dissident Peronists in the creation of the Broad Front.Ahead of the 1995 elections, the Broad Front's leader Carlos Álvarez brought more opposition parties and social groups together into FrePaSo, the Front for a Country in Solidarity. FrePaSo's ticket for the Presidency in 1995 of José Octavio Bordón and Álvarez came second with 33% and established itself as a major force. In the same election Auyero gained 20% of the vote for governor of Buenos Aires. He served as General Secretary of FrePaSo, which also included his old colleagues in the Christian Democrats.

On 17 April 1997, Auyero participated in the programme Hora Clave on Canal 9 presented by Mariano Grondona, appearing in a panel debate with government minister Eduardo Amadeo as well as journalist Néstor Ibarra and economist Enrique Szewach. Shortly after the programme, in which Auyero had debated forcefully with Amadeo, he collapsed with a heart attack. Auyero, who had a history of heart problems, died soon afterwards, at around midnight.

Carlos Tejedor (politician)

Carlos Tejedor (November 4, 1817 — January 3, 1903) was an Argentine jurist and politician, Governor of Buenos Aires Province between 1878 and 1880. Tejedor was a prominent figure in the movement against the Federalization of Buenos Aires.

Francisco de Narváez

Francisco de Narváez Steuer (born 22 September 1953 in Bogotá), known as El Colorado or Pancho, is a Colombian-born naturalized Argentine businessman, politician who ran for governor of Buenos Aires Province on the PRO ballot in the 2007 elections in Argentina. He is currently a member of the Argentine Chamber of Deputies.

José Camilo Crotto

José Camilo Crotto (1863-1936) was an Argentine politician, founder member of the Radical Civic Union. He served as national Senator and was Governor of Buenos Aires Province between 1918 and 1921.

Juan José Viamonte

Juan José Viamonte González (February 9, 1774 – March 31, 1843) was an Argentine general in the early 19th century.

List of heads of state of Argentina

Argentina has had many different types of heads of state as well as many different types of government. During pre-Columbian times, the territories that today form Argentina were inhabited by nomadic tribes without any defined government. During the Spanish colonization of the Americas, the King of Spain retained the ultimate authority over the territories conquered in the New World, appointing viceroys for local government. The territories that would later become Argentina were first part of the Viceroyalty of Peru and then the Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata. The May Revolution started the Argentine War of Independence by replacing the viceroy Baltasar Hidalgo de Cisneros with the first national government. It was the Primera Junta, a junta of several members, which would grow into the Junta Grande with the incorporation of provincial deputies. The size of the juntas gave room to internal political disputes among their members, so they were replaced by the First and Second Triumvirate, of three members. The Assembly of the Year XIII created a new executive authority, with attributions similar to that of a head of state, called the Supreme Director of the United Provinces of the Río de la Plata. A second Assembly, the Congress of Tucumán, declared independence in 1816 and promulgated the Argentine Constitution of 1819. However, this constitution was repealed during armed conflicts between the central government and the Federal League Provinces. This started a period known as the Anarchy of the Year XX, when Argentina lacked any type of head of state.

There was a new attempt to organize a central government in 1826. A new congress wrote a new constitution and elected Bernardino Rivadavia as president in the process. Rivadavia was the first President of Argentina. However, he resigned shortly after and the 1826 Constitution was repealed. The Argentine provinces then organized themselves as a confederation without a central head of state. In this organization, the governors of Buenos Aires province took some duties such as the payment of external debt or the administration of the foreign relations in the name of all provinces. Those governors were appointed by the Buenos Aires legislature, with the only exception of Juan Lavalle. Juan Manuel de Rosas kept the governor office for seventeen consecutive years until Justo José de Urquiza defeated him at the 1852 Battle of Caseros. Urquiza then called for a new Constitutional Assembly and promulgated the Argentine Constitution of 1853, which is the current Constitution of Argentina through amendments. In 1854, Urquiza became the first President of modern Argentina, acting both as head of government and head of state. However, the Buenos Aires Province had rejected the Constitution and became an independent state until the aftermath of the 1859 Battle of Cepeda, although the internecine conflict continued. Only after the subsequent Battle of Pavón in 1861, the former bonaerense leader Bartolomé Mitre became the first president of an unified Argentine Republic.The succession line of constitutional presidents run uninterrupted until 1930, when José Félix Uriburu took government through a civic-military coup d'état. For many decades, there was an alternance between legitimate Presidents and others that took government through illegitimate means. Those means included coups d'état, but also proscriptions of major political parties and electoral fraud. The last coup d'état occurred in 1976 and resulted in the National Reorganization Process, which ended in 1983. The retrospective recognition as presidents or heads of state of any de facto ruler that exercised its authority outside the Constitutional mandate is a controversial and relevant issue in Argentine politics. However, their government actions were recognized as valid following the de facto government doctrine that used to legitimize them. This doctrine was rejected by the 1994 amendment and would not be applicable for potential future coups. The current head of state is President Mauricio Macri, who took office on 10 December 2015.

Oscar Alende

Oscar Eduardo Alende (6 July 1909 – 22 December 1996) was an Argentine politician who founded the Intransigent Party.

Alende was born in Maipú, Buenos Aires Province. He studied medicine at the University of La Plata, where he led the student union, and completed his medical studies at the University of Buenos Aires in 1933. He became head of gastro-intestinal surgery at Rawson Hospital, and a member of the Argentine Surgical Academy. He was co-founder of the Argentine Committee of Assistance to Republican Spain.

In 1948 Alende became a provincial legislator in Buenos Aires Province for the Radical Civic Union (UCR), heading the UCR block from 1950. In 1952 he became a deputy in the Argentine Chamber of Deputies, serving until its dissolution in 1955.

Alende had joined the breakaway Intransigent Radical Civic Union (UCRI). In 1958 he was elected Governor of Buenos Aires Province and served until 1962. Alende became the leader of the UCRI following the 1962 overthrow of President Arturo Frondizi (who broke with the party), and stood as UCRI candidate for President in the 1963 elections. In 1972 he founded the Intransigent Party, the military having banned the use of the name UCRI. He stood once again for President in 1973 on behalf of the Popular Revolutionary Alliance.

After the return of democracy in 1983, Alende became president of the Intransigent Party and stood again for President. He was re-elected to the Chamber of Deputies in 1985, and served in that capacity until his death in 1996.

Oscar Bidegain

Oscar Raúl Bidegain (3 September 1905 – 15 December 1994) was an Argentine peronist politician, sport shooter and surgeon. He was Governor of Buenos Aires Province from 1973 to 1974. He also competed in the 50 m pistol event at the 1948 Summer Olympics.Bidegain's election as governor was largely thanks to the campaign of Tendencia Revolucionaria. Bidegain reciprocated by proclaiming amnesty for some incarcerated members of Tendencia Revolucionaria, a move his Peronist ally Héctor Cámpora also promised as part of his presidential campaign. However Bidegain's running mate and subsequent vicegovernor Victorio Calabró was disliked by Tendencia Revolucionaria. He was seen as a right-wing bureaucratic syndicalist.On January 20 1974 People's Revolutionary Army attacked the Azul garrison resulting in Perón criticizing Bidegain who resigned after being pressured by the Camber of Deputies.
