Seargent Cabral denies go to war because he know that is goign to die saving San Martin in the batelfield (For those who didn't know the story the name is "Juan Bautista Cabral" it was a soldier that helps San Martin in the battle here's some history: Enemy fire overturned San Martín's horse, trapping the colonel beneath it, while the royalists drew close charging with bayonets. Cabral dismounted and assisted San Martín. The exact details have been embellished to the point that it is impossible to say how much risk he took. Some versions have Cabral placing himself between the bayonets and San Martín, which is doubtful. In any event, Cabral was critically wounded, and he died in the refectory of the neighboring San Carlos Convent, which was used as a field hospital. There is a legend (whose roots lie in a letter by San Martín directed to the Asamblea del Año XIII) that on his deathbed he said "I die happy, General; we have beaten the enemy.")
