Garibaldi welcomes King Victor Emmanuel II and turns over his conquests to him

Giuseppe Garibaldi meets Victor Emmanuel II at Teano, Italy, October 26, 1860
10/26/1860
Near Teano in Italy, the world's most famous republican revolutionary greeted King Victor of Emmanuel of Piedmont-Sardinia and turned over all of his conquest in Sicily and Naples to him in the interests of a single, united Italy.  Their combined forces then completed the defeat of all remaining Bourbon forces and modern Italy was almost formed, with only Rome and certain of the Papal States left to be incorporated.  (By John Osborne)
