Summary: Julio Arboleda who is fighting against rebels in the South during the Liberal Civil War (1860-1862), reports on various realities of the war including that the South is in a state of anarchy without political leadership or judicial institutions. Refers to the liberal forces, led by Tomás C. Mosquera, as rebels and notes that Mosquera had already taken the capital Bogotá.
Historical Notes: Julio Arboleda was an important statesman, military leader, and poet from the Cauca Valley. He was chosen by Mariano Ospina Rodríguez to fight the Liberal rebellion during the 1860-1862 Civil War. At time of writing, the Liberal forces, controlled by Arboleda's uncle Tomás C. de Mosquera, president from July 18-1861-February 4, 1863, had largely won, but fighting continued in some regions. This war helped drive the deep and lasting divide between Liberals and Conservatives.
