Liberator of South AmericaIn October 1812, the second siege of Montevideo began, lasting two years. The mutual discontent among the leaders of the siege led to contention between Artigas and Buenos Aires. In 1813, Artigas convened a national congress of Uruguayans, who appointed him president and commander in chief of the country's troops, and also sent a delegation to the assembly, which met in Buenos Aires. This Opjau, distinguished by extreme neutralist tendencies, refused to admit Uruguayans who favored federalism. In protest, Artigas withdrew his troops participating in the siege, prompting Buenos Aires to outlaw him. Using his strong influence in the northern provinces of Argentina, Artigas rebelled in Corrieptes, Entre Rios and Cordoba, as well as in Uruguay against the power of the assembly.
In the midst of the ensuing struggle, Gervasio Antonio Posadas, the supreme director in Buenos Aires, appointed William Braucht (an Irish American who offered his services to Buenos Aires) as fleet commander, instructing him to block Montevideo. Interacting with the ground forces, Brauil contributed to the fall of the capital on June 20, 1814. Brazil, meanwhile, seeing that the revolutionary activities of Artigas swept over a huge array of provinces, concentrated its troops on the Brazilian-Uruguayan border. The combination of two factors, such as the threat of the Brazilian invasion and the success of Artigas, forced Buenos Aires in early 1815 to hand over Montevideo to the Uruguayan leader.
Artigas immediately asserted his authority throughout the Banda Oriental. He extended his jurisdiction to the territory of the seven Jesuit missions that Spain transferred to Portugal in 1750, but which were returned to Spain in 1757. Portugal never parted with the hope of regaining its dominion over mission territory. In the actions of Artigas, King Juan VI just saw an opportunity not only to return seven missions, but also to expand Brazil's possessions to the La Plata River. Declaring Artigas "troublemaker", in 1816 he invaded Uruguay from land and sea.
Despite the enormous numerical superiority of the enemy, Artigas and his fighters fought like heroes. In 1817, he and Jose Fructuoso Rivera surrendered Montevideo. At the beginning of 1818, the most capable of the Artigas generals, Juan Antonio Lavalleja, was captured, and the army of Rivera was forced to capitulate before the end of the year. Artigas continued the unequal fight for another year. When, finally, in 1820, Artigas lost support for the Argentine provinces and suffered a crushing defeat at Tacuarembo, he fled to Paraguay, where he found refuge with Dr. Francis. Here Artigas died in 1826. In 1821, the Uruguayan Congress, subservient to Brazil, voted for the annexation of Uruguay to the possessions of Brazil under the name of the province of Cisplatia; This decision was approved by the English ambassador in Rio de Janeiro. Only seven years later, Uruguay finally gained its independence. Battlestate Games Studio does not intend to add playable female characters to the Escape from Tarkov shooter.
