    Civilopedia:
    Argentina was discovered by Spain in 1514, when it sailors in Atlantic were looking for a passage to Pacific Ocean. These sailors discovered the Plata River (Silver River in Spanish), because its color, the colony was named Argentina (come from Argo, silver in Greek).
    This land was inhabited by dozens of Native Indians as Querandíes, Puelches, Araucanos, Tobas, Patagones and Onas, that have started trade with the strangers after they arrived. Years after the discovery, disputes by lands and the intention of the Monarchy to use slavery work caused wars between Spanish, colonists and the natives, the battles in Buenos Aires in XVI century is an example of these ones. The Indians were killed, the survives have converted to Christians and married with the Europeans. Late, slaves from African were brought to work in Argentina and in the others Spanish colonies.
    The trade of furs, wool and cotton were the main activity in colonial times. The ports in the coast and Plata Basin were numerous and were used to many sea routes. The Silver was extracted in others colonies, like Peru and Bolivia, not from Argentina.
    The Independence process starts in 1776, when the English wanted free trade in South American ports and finish in 1820, when the Rebel Government from Buenos Aires finally defeat the Spanish army in the interior of Argentina, Bolivia, Peru and other colonies. Some historical figures appeared in this period, as Manuel Belgrano, Martín Güemes and Miguel de San Martin, hero of the Argentine Independence and his own cavalry, The Granaderos a Caballo. In these times other colonies of Spain strike on for freedom, as Paraguay and Uruguay.
    The great leader in Civilization 3 is General Dom José de San Martin, an Argentine that studied in Spain and entered in its army, fighting against Napoleon forces in 1808. After this war, San Martin has returned to his country were knew the rebel officers of the colony, joining to Buenos Aires forces and creating the powerful mounted corp. called Granaderos a Caballo. The general fought against Spanish forces in present countries of South America, using audacious strategies, like the invasion of Valparaiso and Lima by sea, he conquest important victories to rebels of the colonies. General Dom José acted in politician decisions too. Across the dead of his wife and the Argentine Civil War, San Martin moved to France in 1824.
    The republic was declared in 1.816, the nation was organized, native lands were conquest and the country entered in some internal conflicts (against the federation) and external one (Plata War and Paraguay War). The most important period of the Argentine politic was the Perionist Time in the XX century, centered in the image of Juan Domingo Peron, a populist politic.
    Since the independence, the army is influent in Argentina, it took the government in different eras, for different reasons. The last period that it ruled the nation was between 1976 and 1983, with the probation of USA government, in the cold war. The army took the power saying the communist had the intention to conquest Argentina, the same argument was used in the military dictatorship in Brazil and Chile. In this time also happened some internal conflicts, the army could resolve them. This period was the most bloodily in the history of the country. In these years, Argentina involves in a war against England, disputing the control of Isla Malvinas (Falkland Islands), a government’s action to join all the country into a national cause.
    Today, the country has some economical problems, result of the plan that fixed Peso exchange rate with the Dollar and the foreign debt. Argentina has agricultural activities (sunflower seeds, lemons, soybeans…), base industries and tourism. The life is heavy based in its capital, Buenos Aires and the people fall in love by soccer and them idol, Maradonna. The Patagonia is a rich area of natural resources, like Amazon in Brazil.

    I'd still prefer to wait for a good 3-d era specific of Eva Peron. (Yes, I realize her husband was the president, but I'm short on female leaderheads)

    I´m glad that someone took time to make a civ from home, but just a small advice, I would make Los Granaderos A Caballo the UU instead of the Pucara. It´s true that the government of Perón was an important moment, but, world wide, the golden age was in the end of the XIX century, where we had the same productivity as North America.
    Keep up the good work - Garfio55
