  • Venezuela's Greatest Liberator By: Karina Chavez
  • It's time for me to make a change for my people as well!
  • I would be honored to help you Bolivar. 
  • Sir Alexandre Petion, we need your support to defeat the Spanish army. 
  • Once there was a wealthy family of criollos who had a young boy named Simon Bolivar, born on July 24, 1783. As Bolivar was growing up he realized his nation is going through hard times because they were under the Spanish Empire's control, he knew a change had to be made.  
  • My people are now free, and your king will be left with nothing!
  • As a young man, Bolivar entered a military academy where he studied military tactics that he never knew he was going to use later in life. On a bright sunny day year, 1804 Bolivar had witnessed a coronation of Nepolian as military leader, soon he started thinking that he wanted to do the same for the liberation of his own people and native place.  
  • Jose, I won't be able to defeat the Spanish army on the southern side of South America on time! Will you help me? 
  • Thank you brother. 
  • Don't worry Bolivar, I will help you with the Southern side of South America.  
  • Bolivar had moved quickly to gather an army, they trained day and night to prepare for battle. Bolivar realized his army wasn't stable enough to fight yet, he needed more support. That is when he met Alexander Petion a free Haitian leader, right away in 1816 to help Bolivar along the way. 
  • "God grants victory to perseverance." 
  • Cheers to our liberator!
  • Bolivar was soon in the battle against the Spanish army to defeat the power of one person who controlled them all. His name was Fernando VII, ruler of the Spanish Empire. With the help of Haitian soldiers, they were able to free slaves in Venezuela. Bolivar along with his wife had hope in making a change for their colony as they were thriving. 
  • In 1819 Bolivar was declared president, and continued to liberate colonies, he soon goes over Ecuador and liberates it from Spain. Bolivar notices he's moving slow and needs more help, that's when he meets Jose de San Martin. With Jose's help, he was able to defeat the Spanish army on the southern side and Bolivar on the northern side of South America.  
  • Bolivar was able to defeat the last Spanish forces in Venezuela. He couldn't believe his dream as a young man had come true in being the one making a change in his colony. He liberates his hometown (Venezuela) along with other colonies which were Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru to their own independence soon declared them as a nation of the Gran Colombia in 1830.
