Opponents of the Confederation varied including Peruvians and Chileans fearful of the shift in the Andean balance of power created by Santa Cruz's presence. The commanders in the battle were distinguished political leaders: Santa Cruz, president of Bolivia and Manuel Bulnes, president of Chile (1841-1851). Santa Cruz led the Ejercito de la Confederacion Perú-Boliviana and Manuel Bulnes commanded the Ejercito Unido-Restaurador. The plan shows three stages of the battle. The map shows roads, streams, vegetation, pictorial representation of relief, and positions of opposing military units classified by their political allegiances.
