Peru and Chile Sign Treaty of Ancón (1883)

The Treaty of Ancón ended Peru's involvement in the War of the Pacific, which broke out between Chile and the joint forces of Bolivia and Peru in 1879. Victorious, Chile annexed the Peruvian province of Tarapacá and gained substantial mineral-rich territories, leaving Bolivia without access to the sea. The loss of the coast remains an emotional issue for many Bolivians, who attribute their country's problems to being landlocked. What items stolen during the war did Chile return to Peru in 2007?

Coastlines are definitely worth fighting for.

Or should we just share everything?

It is not surprising someone from Colorado would want a right of way to the coast. ;-}

Can you imagine what a score that would be? Getting a huge pile of books that are at least 126 years old?

Just trying to figure out the difference between

Wait, there was a war and the United States didn't get dragged into it for once? Oh, wait. Lackawanna Conference.

Make every post as if it was the first one in the thread.

THE GUANO ERA, 1845-70


The guano boom, made possible by the droppings from millions of birds on the Chincha Islands, proved to be a veritable bonanza for Peru, beginning in the 1840s. By the time that this natural resource had been depleted three decades later, Peru had exported some 12 million tons of the fertilizer to Europe and North America, where it stimulated the commercial agricultural revolution. On the basis of a truly enormous flow of revenue to the state (nearly US$500 million), Peru was presented in the middle decades of the nineteenth century with a historic opportunity for development. Why this did not materialize, but rather became a classic case of boom-bust export dependence, has continued to be the subject of intense discussion and debate. Most analysts, however, concur with historian Magnus Mörner that "guano wealth was, on the whole, a developmental opportunity missed."

The sound of waves crashing.

Being a sail away from another world.

At least we have the silent splendor of the Rocky Mountains.

My mother fainted on Pikes Peak. I can be in the Maine mountains in less than an hour. We have that little trail running through.
