Giuseppe Garibaldi 1807-1882, was an Italian general, politician and nationalist who played a large role in the history of Italy. He is considered, with Camillo Benso, Count of Cavour, Victor Emmanuel II of Italy and Giuseppe Mazzini, as one of Italy's |fathers of the fatherland|. Garibaldi personally commanded and fought in many military campaigns that led eventually to the Italian unification. He was appointed general by the provisional government of Milan in 1848, General of the Roman Republic in 1849 by the Minister of War, and led the Expedition of the Thousand on behalf and with the consent of Victor Emmanuel II.
Romanelli was a committed patriot who personally knew Garibaldi and fought with him in the war of Independence from the Austrians in 1848-1849. For further information go to
