Caceres' final assault and capture of Lima[edit]

On November 28, 1885, Caceres and his forces appeared outside Lima and launched their final assault. By this time, the people of Lima welcomed Caceres and joined him. Fighting between Caceres' and Iglesias' forces continued into November 29 and 30. On December 3, 1885, with his control of Lima reduced to only the Government Palace, Iglesias resigned and went into exile.
