      (1827-1830) With news from across the Americas, this occasional publication chronicles the decline of Peruvian support for Bolivar.

    Santiago de Chuco

    • El Centinela en Campana

      (1824) This is an early example of revolutionary media, created by its editor’s own admission, for the sole purpose of raising support for independence. Press appeared to move with the revolutionary forces, as the name would indicate.
