On March 6, 1845, the people of Guayaquil, Ecuador, revolted against the government of the General Juan Jose Flores under the leadership of General Antonio Elizalde and Lieutenant-Colonel Fernando Ayarza. The people took the artillery barracks of Guayaquil along with other military and civilian supporters, including the guard on duty. Flores surrendered on his plantantion, La Elvira, near Babahoyo and accepted a negotiation - which had terms including his leaving power and the declaration of all his decrees, laws, and acts as void and null, ending fifteen years of foreign domination in Ecuador. Flores received 20,000 pesos for his property and immediately left the country for Spain. The country was then governed by the triumvirate composed of Jose Joaquin de Olmedo, Vicente Ramon Roca and Diego Noboa.
