Juan de la Rosa. Memoirs of the last soldier of Independence by Nataniel Aguirre (Cochabamba, Bolivia, 1843-Montevideo, Uruguay, 1888), was published in 1885 in Cochabamba. It is a novel that narrates essential facts of Bolivian national history, at the time of the first uprising for independence in Cochabamba.
The events are told by one of the surviving Bolivian rebels, Juan de la Rosa. In his old age, he rebuilt his life in Cochabamba. It also recounts the historical episodes between 1809 and 1811. He dedicates a part of the novel to the death of his mother. It also tells the Spanish repression, the resistance and the victories and defeats of the Bolivian war of independence.
The author recreates the daily life of Cochabamba, in the late nineteenth century, from fiction. The character recalls the historical process and the ideals that gave rise to the Bolivian republic. Meanwhile, it puts in voice of “memory” family spaces, personal details and the tension between public and private life.
Some researchers, such as Bolivian Gustavo García, maintain that the work does not belong to Nataniel Aguirre. According to García, Aguirre would have edited the novel —whose real author would be Colonel Juan de la Rosa or Juan Altamirano Calatayud— and helped correct it.
The problem is that in the first edition, of 1885, there is no reference to Aguirre: the novel, entitled Cochabamba. Memoirs of the last soldier of Independence, is signed by Juan de la Rosa, who is the main character: Juanito, followed by the name of his mother Rosita.
