Bartolome Mitre

Bartolome Mitre Martinez was an Argentine statesman, military figure, and author. He was the President of Argentina from 1862 to 1868.

Mitre was born in Buenos Aires to a Greek Argentine family originally named Mitropoulos.

As a liberal, he was an opponent of Juan Manuel de Rosas, and he was forced into exile. He worked as a soldier and journalist in Uruguay as a supporter of General Fructuoso Rivera, who named Mitre Lieutenant Coronel of the Uruguayan Army in 1846. Mitre later lived in Bolivia, Peru, and Chile, and in the latter country, he collaborated with legal scholar and fellow Argentine exile Juan Bautista Alberdi in the latter's periodical, El Comercio of Valparaiso.
