This chapter studies Chilean and rioplatense politics in an age of military organization. Its aim is to understand why and how the Army of the Andes was created in the years 1814–1817, examining both the support given by the Buenos Aires government to José de San Martín’s plan to re-conquer Chile from the royalists and the role played by Chileans in this military enterprise.

Keywords:   San Martín, Army of the Andes, cordillera, battle of Chacabuco, Guerra de Zapa
