Juan Luis Ossa Santa Cruz

Liverpool University Press

This chapter argues that the arrival in Santiago of José de San Martín after the battle of Chacabuco provoked a realignment of Chilean politics. For the first time in more than two years the insurgents took control of the capital. The aim of this chapter is to prove that the santiaguinos became actively involved in politics, and that military affairs were at the centre of their political agenda. This was the case because decisions concerning the war were made in Santiago, and also because Bernardo O’Higgins’ political programme was designed and implemented by his military allies.
