The Defense of Sucre, appeared in 1850, twenty years after the assassination of Antonio José de Sucre because an anonymous and malicious collaborator of the newspaper El Comercio de Lima questioned the merits of the hero of Ayacucho.
In response, Domingo de Alcalá, Sucre’s maternal nephew, collected statements from witnesses of the Battle of Ayacucho. In order to explain the performance of the Marshal. These epistolary documents were printed in Lima.
This edition of the Defense of Sucre includes the brief biography of Sucre written by Simón Bolívar.
Known as the “Grand Marshal of Ayacucho”, Antonio José Francisco de Sucre y Alcalá is considered the most complete military of the heroes of Latin American independence. He is also recognized as a Venezuelan politician, statesman, diplomat and military strategist.
José de Sucre was assassinated on June 4, 1830, when he was returning to Quito to reunite with his family. Just as he was crossing the narrow Cabuyal trail in the Berruecos Mountains (southern Colombia), he received a bullet impact that caused his immediate death.
His corpse was left lying for twenty-four hours, on a sidewalk, as illustrated by the image on our cover. It is not known for sure who killed him. It is speculated that he was the victim of jealousy from his political adversaries.
