Chile History

In 1810, Chile began fighting for independence with Spain. Chile successfully gained independence from Spain in 1818 with help mainly from Bernardo O'Higgins (1778-1842) and José de San Martín (1778-1850). Before that, Chile was a Spanish colony for 300 years.Chilean patriots joined with the armies ofJosé de San Martín after the fight for independence with Spain started (in Argentina). When Chile defeated Spain, Bernardo O’ Higgins became the dictator of the new republic. September 18 is an independent holiday in Chile to commemorate the founding of the government back in 1810. After O’Higgins left the country Chile’s government was unstable for many years. After the civil war in 1891, Chile’s government became even more unstable. Chile returned to constitutional rule in 1932 with the reelection of president Arturo Alessandri. The focus of the 20th century was all about promoting economic growth for Chile.

Chile has been one of the most prosperous Latin American countries for a long time. Indians lived in what is now known as Chile until Spaniards arrived in the 1500s. Most Chileans are a mixed Spanish and Indian ancestry. Spaniards defeated the Inca of Peru by 1533. Chile’s constitution was adopted during the middle of the authoritarian rule.Chile’s defeat over Peru and Bolivia gave them mineral resources they needed such as nitrates and copper.When Augusto Pinochet ruled rampant human rights violations took place. Chileans consider indigenous warriors from hundreds of years ago natural heroes. In 1945, the Chilean poet Gabriela Mistral became the first Latin American writer to win the Nobel Prize in literature.
