ETCHECHURY BARRERA, Mario. "Chinas, guayaquises and unarmed people": Some considerations about the social impact of the war in Montevideo and its rural Hinterland (1842-1845). Prohistoria [online]. 2017, vol.28, pp.129-147. ISSN 1851-9504.

The article analyzes the massive displacements of the rural civilian population during the regional conflicts of the Rio de la Plata area, in the mid-nineteenth century, and the way in which this intense mobilization was a central part of the logistics of the war. Starting with an approach of the military operations commanded by Fructuoso Rivera in the rural areas of the Estado Oriental del Uruguay, between 1842 and 1845, the paper explores the social forms that took those migrations, exploring in depth the creation of civil contingents (convoys) that accompanied the armies in campaign and the relocation processes of the population mobilized inside the city-port of Montevideo

Keywords : War; Civilians; Migrations; Militarization; Río de la Plata.
