Murder of Sucre

Antonio José de Sucre was born in Cumaná on February 3, 1795 and in his independence journey he achieved the title of Grand Marshal of Ayacucho, which he earned for the important victory in the Battle of Ayacucho, fought on December 9, 1824 and with which liberated Peru, destroying the last Spanish stronghold in South America, by defeating Viceroy José de la Serna e Hinojosa, but before, on May 24, 1822, he had already triumphed in the Battle of Pichincha, with which he liberated Quito. , capital of Ecuador. In addition to that title, he was also designated President for life of the Republic of Bolivia, founded by the Liberator Father Simón Bolívar in what was Upper Peru, on August 6, 1825, and with all that revolutionary and emancipatory trajectory, the June 4, 1830 in the mountains of Berruecos, site of the territory of New Granada, which later, within the framework of Gran Colombia, acquired the name of Cundinamarca and in 1886, definitively became Colombia.

The synthesis of the murder of this Venezuelan, possessor of an immense humanitarian condition and who married the Ecuadorian Mariana Carcelén y Larrea, Marchioness of Solanda: he was a victim of the actions of the mantuanaje of the nations emancipated by the Liberator, of Spanish colonialism. On a day like today, Tuesday, June 4, 194 years have passed since that crime that led the Caraqueño Universal to utter those words that recorded his pain: “They have killed the Abel of America!”

To arrive at the criminal murder of Sucre, we have to go through a series of circumstances that lead us to explain the reason for that action, which did not respond at any time to the defeated Spain in South America, by the three great characters: Bolívar , San Martín and Sucre.

In principle we have to point out Bolívar's categorical refusal to adhere to the Crown or establish a European prince on this continent; rather, he spoke of liberating Cuba. It was then that the series of attacks arose of which the man from Caracas himself was a victim and in 1828 Sucre himself suffered one that left him useless in one of his arms. It was a sector of the mantuanaje that followed the vile path that led them to end the life of the man from Cuman, in a disastrous action led by the Venezuelan Apolinar Morillo, executed in 1842, and the great leader of the macabre action, José María Obando, who, in addition to becoming President of Colombia, died in the war that affected the neighboring country in 1862, exactly when in Venezuela we were engaged in the Federal War. Santander's hands cannot be left out of the crime against Sucre.
