Joaquín María Ramiro (1800-1860) was an Argentine military man, who took part in the Argentine War of Independence, and military civic conflicts between Unitarios and Federales.[1] He held the position of Edecán during the presidency of Santiago Derqui.[2]


Ramiro was born in Buenos Aires, son of Don Francisco de Paula Ramiro and Doña Basilia Eduviges Larrachea Campos, belonging to an illustrious family. He began his military career at eighteen, serving in 1st Batallón de Cazadores de los Andes, and participating heroically in the battles of Cancha Rayada and Maipú,[3] he was promoted to second lieutenant by General José de San Martín.[4] Ramiro also served in San Juan and Mendoza at the orders of his uncle the Governor of that province Don Pedro José Campos. In 1820 he was designated as intermediary by Mariano Mendizábal to agree to the separation of the provinces of Mendoza, San Juan and San Luis from the Intendencia de Cuyo.[5] Back in Buenos Aires, Joaquín Ramiro was appointed to serve as a lieutenant in the Hussar Regiment, and participated actively in military expeditions against the Indians, carried out by Governor Martín Rodríguez. Later with the rank of Captain of the Caballeria, he participated in the Brazilian War.[6]

Ramiro was a loyal officer of the army of Juan Manuel de Rosas, serving in the Batalla de Puente de Márquez and during the Revolución de los Restauradores. In 1840, he was in charge of the 1.° Batallón de Voluntarios Rebajados of Buenos Aires, a military unit of the city,[7] that served as support for the besieging forces of Manuel Oribe in Montevideo. In the Batalla de Caseros, he served as a staff officer of the army of Rosas.[8]

Joaquín María Ramiro was Edecán of Juan José Viamonte, Juan Manuel de Rosas, Justo José de Urquiza and Santiago Derqui.[9] He died in the city of Parana, Entre Ríos, where he fulfilled administrative functions as Captain of the Port of that province.[10]
