Ovidio Lagos

Ovidio Lagos (31 August 1825 13 August 1891) was an Argentine journalist, businessman and politician.

Lagos was born in Buenos Aires in a country torn apart by internal strife. Federalists, who supported the view of Argentina as a confederation of self-ruled provincial states, fought Unitarians, who wanted a national government centralized in and controlled from Buenos Aires.

Lagos worked as a clerk and then as a typographist in a state printing press, under the government of Juan Manuel de Rosas. Though nominally federalist, Rosas worked mainly to secure power for himself . Lagos, a supporter of the federalist cause, got into trouble and was forced to flee to Parana, Entre Rios. Rosas was ousted by a former ally, Justo Jose de Urquiza, in 1852.
