Garibaldi pledges that his conquests will become a part of a united Italy

Giuseppe Garibaldi, detail
10/12/1860
In a proclamation in Naples, Giuseppe Garibaldi announced that King Victor Emmanuel of Piedmont-Sardinia was to enter the province as ruler of Italy.  The announcement stated clearly Garibaldi's intentions saying "No more political colours, no more parties, no more discord!  Italy one..."  Three days later he reaffirmed this, proclaiming that the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies would from then on "form an integral part of one and indivisible Italy."  (By John Osborne)
