…..During our discussion of South America, we talked about Simon
Bolivar, who is in many Latin American countries considered to be the
George Washington of their area. Bolivar played a key role in Latin
America's successful struggle for independence from the Spanish
Empire. Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia all gained
their independence as a direct result of Simon Bolivar’s help!

Simon Bolivar, in which you discuss his early life, what he did for many
Latin American countries, and why he is remembered as such an
amazing person. …..
