Abstract

The chapter, "Arms for Revolutions," authored by Rafe Blaufarb  traces the ties between the military demobilization after the Napoleonic Wars and the War of 1812 to the Latin American Wars for Independence revival of fortune after 1815. Human and material military resources were more accessible; both in terms of foreign fighters freed from the prior conflicts that had occupied them and the greater availability of munitions.

The volume, War, Demobilization and Memory: The Legacy of War in the Era of Atlantic Revolutions, examines the impact of the wars in the Atlantic world between 1770 and 1830, focusing both on the military, economic, political, social and cultural demobilization that occurred immediately at their end, and their long-term legacy and memory.
