Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Juan Galindo (1802-1839) was a Central American explorer and army officer. He fought for Central American independence from Spain and led the charge that took the fortress at Omoa, the last Spanish stronghold in Central America. Galindo's father Philemon Galindo was a government official in Costa Rica. He was of Spanish, English and Irish descent, but the curious rumor that Juan Galindo was born in Ireland as "John Gallager" seems to have no basis. Galindo worked for the government of the United Provinces of Central America. In addition to his military duties, his work included a stint as governor of Pet n and diplomatic missions to Havana and the United States. During this time, he wrote accounts of local conditions, topography and landmarks.show more
