Juan Facundo Quiroga. Manuscript, April 14, 1829.


Quiroga notifies the military commanders and civil judges in Córdoba that he will travel to Córdoba with his men to rescue the province. He asks for their cooperation. At the time, Córdoba was in the hands of the Unitarios, and this was one of Quiroga’s campaigns to gain control of the province during the civil war.
