Random information on the term “Brigand”:

Banditry (Spanish: bandidaje) was a considerable phenomenon in 19th century and early 20th century Central Chile and Araucanía. Many bandits achieved legendary status for their brutality and others for being regarded folk heroes. The bandits usually preyed on haciendas and their inquilinos.

The Chilean War of Independence (1810–1826) shaped an era of banditry as the war transitioned into irregular warfare known as Guerra a muerte (1819–1821) which was particularly destructive for the Biobío area and ended only to see a period of outlaw banditry occur until the late 1820s. The rise of banditry made travel dangerous indeed 1812 is held as the date from where travel between Concepción and Santiago was not longer safe for small groups. The Pincheira brothers, a royalist outlaw group based on indigenous territory east of the Andes was defeated and dissolved in 1832.

In the words of Benjamín Vicuña Mackenna banditry was a “national plague, worse than lepra or cholera”. Following Chilean victories in War of the Pacific against Peru veterans begun to return in 1881 leading to a surge in banditry. The return of the veterans coincided with the Chilean Army’s crushing of Mapuche resistance in the Occupation of Araucanía (1861–1883). This led to opportunities bandits and veterans-turned-bandits to immigrate to the newly opened Aracanía territory, leading to sudden rise in violence and in a region that was recovering from Chilean-Mapuche warfare. Bandits that immigrated to Araucanía allied with displaced Mapuche and made cattle theft their chief business. Stolen cattle was sold in marketplaces through the region.
