William Walker: “There, that’s Jose Dolores. At the bottom where the soldiers are running. Do you see him? A fine specimen, isn’t he? You know, it’s an exemplary story. In the beginning he was nothing. A porter, a water carrier. And England makes him a revolutionary leader, and when he no longer serves her, he’s put aside. And when he rebels again, more or less in the name of...those same ideals which England taught him, England decides to eliminate him. Don’t you think that’s a small masterpiece?”
