The passionate and complex legacy of General Tom-s Cipriano de Mosquera, one of the leading figures of Colombian politics in the 19th century, Bol-var's escort, and the President of Colombia more than once, is displayed in this biography. Mosquera's accomplishments - laying down the foundation of what would become the United States of Colombia and speaking out about modernisation and economical opportunity - are explored alongside his tough personality, his loves and falling outs, his scandalous relationships, his early conservative political beliefs and his later liberal leanings, and his decrees of religious freedom.
