Summary: Julio Arboleda, leader of Conservative forces in the South, publishes several documents to defame Tomás C. de Mosquera in his liberal rebellion and his taking of Bogotá.
Historical Notes: This document comes from the 1860-1862 Civil War. At the time of writing, the Liberal forces, controlled by Tomás C. Mosquera, president from July 18-1861-February 4, 1863, had largely won, but fighting continued in some regions. Mosquera's nephews, Sergio and Julio Arboleda led the Conservative forces. This war helped drive the deep and lasting divide between Liberals and Conservatives. Bushnell, David. The Making of Modern Colombia : A Nation in Spite of Itself.
