|History of Uruguay|
The Revolution of the Lances (Revolución de las Lanzas) occurred in Uruguay from September 12, 1870 to April 6, 1872.
Led by Timoteo Aparicio, leader of the National Party of Uruguay (the Blancos) and a former army officer, it was named after the tacuara, an improvised weapon used by South American militias, consisting of a knife tied to a stalk of cane similar to bambu, resulting in a rudimentary lance.
This agreement in one form or another was to last until the early 20th century, when the Blanco forces were defeated at the Battle of Masoller in 1904.
