Local Paper No.40 – Juan Manuel De Rosas, The Ousted Dictator
Author: Dave Jacobs
This is a well researched account of the Argentinean Dictator’s exile in Southampton from 1852, his family life, how he escaped from Buenos Aires, his home in Carlton Crescent and his farm in Burgess Street, Swaythling. He died on 14 March 1877 in Southampton and was buried in an impressive vault in Southampton Old Cemetery. In 1989, when the political situation changed in Argentina, his coffin was exhumed and he was reburied in the family tomb in La Recolata Cemetery, Buenos Aires. It is nicely illustrated with colour photos.
