The war of The Triple Alliance (1865-1870) was precipitated by the invasion of Brazil by Paraguayan forces on 26 December 1864. The origins of the war were based on a number of complex boundary disputes that arose in the post-colonial era. In May 1865 the Argentine Confederation, the Republic of Uruguay and the Brazilian Empire joined together as a Triple Alliance to defeat Paraguay and force Francisco Solano Lopez from power. The resulting war resulted in horrendous losses and it was one of the bloodiest wars in South American history.

Photographers went to the front lines during the battles of the War of the Triple Alliance (1865-1870)[1][2] and Esteban Garcia[3] took collodion prints that were published by Bate y Cía [Bate & Co.] (Montevideo). The photographs were sold in sets of ten as La Guerra Ilustrada (The War Illustrated) in 1866. The war remains the bloodiest fought in South America and yet it is little known outside the region.
