The civil wars that wracked Argentina since the fall of dictator Juan Manuel de Rosas in 1852 came to an end, allowing the formation of a unified constitutional republic under the leadership of Bartolomé Mitre. Dickinson alumnus Francis Sutton Livingston, class of 1861 was a friend and ally of the new president and led a regiment in his forces in the conflict. (By Brian Bockelman)
