Today in Latin American history, Brazilian rebels captured Porto Alegre starting the 10-year-long Farroupilha Revolution in 1835.

The uprising is believed to have begun due to the difference between the economy of Rio Grande do Sul and the rest of the country.

Unlike the other states, the state economy focused in the internal market rather than exporting commodities.

On March 1, 1845, the peace negotiations led by Lima e Silva and Antônio Vicente da Fontoura concluded with the signing of the Ponche Verde Treaty between the two sides, in Dom Pedrito. The treaty offered the rebels a full amnesty, full incorporation into the imperial army and the choice of the next provincial president.
