He fought for both sides! At first he allied himself with Santa Cruz, but later, when the 2nd expedition landed in North Peru he changed side and fought for the destruction of the Confederation.

Over 1,500 Peruvian troops fought alongside Chilean troops in the Yungay Battle. The dominant political Peruvian class did not want an alliance between Bolivia and Peru because, among other reasons, they didn't want a Bolivian president. In that battle Bulnes was having problems and, according to historians, he wanted to retreat but he was stopped by Peruvian General Ramon Castilla, the real hero of this battle, and who was fighting along with Bulnes against the Confederation. Castilla pushed Bulnes and at the end the victory was assured. The alliance Peru-Chile won that battle. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Alvaro3010 (talkcontribs) 22:33, 27 February 2010 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

Chilean-Confederation war War of the Confederation - Rationale: The common name used in the history books of Latin America is War of the Confederation , not the new one that has been substituted and represents a clear POV. The name comes not from a list of the participants (Argentina, Chile, Confederation) but from the fact that the ultimate goal of each side was either to preserve or eliminate the Confederation as a political entity within Latin America . The new name “Chilean-Confederation War” assumes only two participants, which is not the case, and is not even in common use in Peru, the only place where it has some actual proponents. The older Peruvian historians all use “War of the Confederation”. Propose going back to War of the Confederation since it is the most commonly used name in all history books -- Mel Romero 01:55, 7 September 2006 (UTC)
