"PERU FROM THIS MOMENT IS FREE AND INDEPENDENT BY THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE AND BY THE JUSTICE OF ITS CAUSE THAT GOD DEFENDS. VIVA LA PATRIA! VIVA LA LIBERTAD! VIVA LA INDEPENDENCIA!"

"I have not seen a more lucid or larger contest in America. The cheers were continuosly echoed around the town ... I was one of the people that walked the flag of Peru Independence on that day.

No prize could be more flattering to me than seeing the banner of freedom raised in the center of the most important city in this part of America. On that same night there was drink and dance at the town hall, no troops managed to contain the crowd of people and the next night there was a dance in the main Palace"
