Gerardo Barrios (1813-1865) led in 1856 the Salvadorian troops sent to Nicaragua to repel the invasion by the American freeboter William Walker (1824-1860). On 10 January 1859, President Miguel Santín del Castillo (1830-1880) appointed Francisco Dueñas (1810-1884) as Minister of the Government, which caused the wrath of several officers. The next day, Barrios, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, raised a rebellion that expelled Dueñas from the country. Sacked on 19 January by Santín, Barrios raised the army and overthrown the president.
While the presidency was subsequently exercised by the former Vice President, Joaquín Eufrasio Guzmán (1801-1875), the government was indeed ruled by Barrios. The presidential mandate was extended from two to six years. On 12 March 1859, Barrios proclaimed himself President of the Republic; appointed Senator on 21 January 1860 by the Legislative ssembly, he was proclaimed seven days later President for the period 1860-1865 by the Chamber of Representatives and Senators.
President Barrios initiated liberal reforms, reorganized the public finances, supported agriculture and industry, created a professional army, and promoted secular education. He maintained pacific coexistence with Guatemala, visiting the country in 1860.
Conflicts with the church soon broke out; Bishop Tomás Pineda y Saldaña (1791-1875) ordered the priests to reject the Constitution, claiming that the sole authorities were God, the bishop and the pope. The conservatives presented Barrios as anticlerical, despotic and liberal; most of them, the bishop included, exiled to Guatemala, where they initiated a campaign against the Salvadorian government. This resulted in a deterioration of the relationships between the two countries.
War broke out in February 1863; on 19 June, the Guatemala troops, led by President Rafael Carrera (1814-1865), invaded El Salvador. On 26 October, San Salvador was seized and Barrios fled to San Miguel. Francisco Dueñas took the power, establishing a conservative government led by Santiago González (1818-1887). Elected president in 1865, Dueñas obtained the extradition of Barrios from Nicaragua. Barrios was sentenced to death on 10 August by a war council and executed the next day.
The conservative reaction lasted much shorter than expected. Carrera's conservative successor, Vicente Cerna (1815-1885), was expelled by Justo Rufino Barrios (1835-1885) in 1871. The same year, González defeated Dueñas; the liberal Rafael Zaldívar (1834-1903) subsequently fostered the reforms initiated by Barrios.
