Garibaldi in 1866.

Giuseppe Garibaldi was an Italian soldier who is best known for the unification of Italy.

Garibaldi led the navy of the breakaway Riograndense Republic in southern Brazil until it was defeated in 1839. He then led the navy of Uruguay to victory. Later, he fought for Italian unification. He led a group called the Red Shirts through the Kingdom of Two Sicilies to bring different kingdoms in Italy together in 1860. He is nicknamed "Hero of two worlds" For his exploits in Italy and Spain. As a student I am, I wanted to tell you that if Southern Italy is like this it is because of Garibaldi who let himself be manipulated like a "puppet" by the King of Italy.
