Argentinean statesman. Known as a political opponent to Rosas since 1829, he fought in the insurrection and was forced to flee to Chili where he established a school. While in Chile, he published his noted book, "Facundo" in 1845. He was the president of Argentina 1868-1874 with one of the most progressive administrations ever.

Minister to the United States, 1861-1868, he traveled extensively in the U.S. and Europe but returned to Argentina in 1851 to help overthrow Rosas. As President, his administration was vigorous and progressive; expanding trade, improving transportation, promoting immigration and greatly enhancing education. In 1856, he organized the Department of Public Education with himself as head. Also a published author, he wrote, "Popular Education."

Sarmiento died 9/11/1888, in Asuncion, Paraguay.
