About Independence Day
In 1810 Argentina announced its independence of Spain, but Paraguay rejected to join it and alternatively announced its own independence on May 14, 1811. After3 years José Gaspar Rodríguez Francia made himself dictator and dominated utterly until his death in 1840. Fearing that Paraguay might fall target to stronger Argentina, Francia dictated a policy of national closing off. In the administrative shakeup following the dictator's death, his nephew Carlos Antonio López became the leading political figure. In 1844 López became president and dictator. He reversed the isolationist policy, encouraged commerce, instituted many reforms, and began building a railroad. Under his rule the population of Paraguay rose to more than 1 million persons. Happy Paraguayan Independence Day! On this day in 1811, Paraguay became an independent nation. The Spanish actually withdrew on May 14th, but Paraguay celebrates its independence on May 14th.
