Brigardier General link[edit]

"He subsequently joined Bolívar and fought with him gaining his confidence and made "Military Chief of the Department of Panama", "Governor of Puerto Cabello", "Chief of Staff of Colombia", "Minister of War and Maritime of Venezuela" and, in 1849, was promoted to the rank of Brigadier General by Bolívar.[1]"

This is a strange sentence, considering Bolívar died in 1830. The linked article doesn't mention this either. What it does say is that General Carlos Soublette recommended Valero for the post of Brigardier General in the Colombian Army. I'm not sure what source the sentence in the article uses.

  • You are right! General Carlos Soublette, recommended that General Francisco de Paula Santander the Vice President of Colombia to name Valero to the rank of Brigadier General of the Colombian Army. It must have been a typo. Tony the Marine (talk) 07:32, 16 April 2009 (UTC)


Marine 69-71, he's your national hero, not mine, but as far as I know the name's written with an accent mark. Why d'you take it off? Hajor 19:23, 6 Jul 2004 (UTC)

English Tidy[edit]

I have tightened up the use of English - as it was too chatty and not encylcopaedic. A curate's egg 10:17, 8 Jun 2005 (UTC)
