November 7, 1810 Battle of Suipacha
Thought to have been one of the battles fought in the Alto Peru Campaigns, the Battle of Suipacha was just another Battle for control of the continent of South America. A force of over 600 Revolutionaries battled a force of over 800 Spanish and other white (they be Dutch, English, French, Portugeese, and others) Nations for control of South America. This battle was fought in Bolivia (in those times the region was known as Upper Peru) and obviously involved the Inca Anishinabek and the North American Anishinabek. The soldiers from the white confederation were sent to the Bolivia region from Buenos Aries. On November 7, 1810, a battle commenced between the Anishinabe soldiers and white soldiers. Within 30 minutes, the brave Anishinabe soldiers had routed the white military force. They forced the whites soldiers to withdraw from their positions. After the Anishinabe victory an uprising in Upper Peru commenced. One of the casualties was the Spanish Governor Francisco de Paula Sanz. He was executed. Afterwards, the Anishinabe soldiers commenced to advance towards the north, liberating Indian settlements from white subjugation. An important bit of information concerns the Rio de la Plata which enters the South Atlantic Ocean where the boundary between Argentina and Uruguay are located. From there, it goes up into Paraguay where it continues it route up to southern Bolivia. Early on (years before 1810), the white confederation led by England, tried to bring the Rio de la Plata under their control but met stiff opposition. The whites would use the Rio de la Plata and other important South American riverways to blockade Indian sailing vessels from enterring the Atlantic, Caribbean, and Atlantic Oceans, as well as sending white settlers to the deltas where those rivers enterred the oceans.
