The objective of this article is to analyze the position of General Bernardo O'Higgins during the Chilean War against the Peru-Bolivian Confederation. The review of their correspondence, while he was in Peru, would leave in evidence that economic interests were the key at the time of having to determine support for one side or the other. Beyond the idealized look against the conflict, which its defenders have sought to highlight, hides a pragmatic man, anxious to protect their interests.
