IPTC INFO
CaptionJosé Gervasio Artigas Arnal June 19 1764 - September 23 1850 was a national hero of Uruguay sometimes called "the father of Uruguayan independence". _______________ * I will not sell the rich heritage of the Orientals at the low price of necessity. No venderé el rico patrimonio de los Orientales al bajo precio de la necesidad. * My authority comes from you and it ceases before your sovereign presence. Mi autoridad emana de vosotros y ella cesa ante vuestra presencia soberana. * Mercy for the defeated. Clemencia para los vencidos. * Let the Orientals be as cultured as they are brave. Sean los Orientales tan ilustrados como valientes. _________________ He admired the United States of America and was said to always carry a copy of the United States Constitution with him. He wanted the United Provinces of the River Plate government to be based on the same federalist ideas as the United States of America. These ideals went against what the Buenos Aires government of the time wanted a centralised state; some even supported the idea of putting a European monarch in charge of the newly independent lands but he managed to gain the support of some other provinces. Because of this the Buenos Aires government supported the Portuguese invasion of the Eastern Bank. __________ * Artigas's birthday is celebrated as a national holiday 19 June.
