I offer neither pay, nor quarters, nor food; I offer only hunger, thirst, forced marches, battles, and death. Let him who loves his country with his heart, and not merely with his lips, follow me.
— Giuseppe Garibaldi

Giuseppe Maria Garibaldi was a prominent Italian military leader and key figure in the process of Italian unification. He is widely revered as one of one of the greatest generals of modern times and one of Italy's "founding fathers".

Garibaldi was born on July 4, 1807, in Nice, then part of the French Empire. He began his career as a sailor, traversing the seas and acquiring a deep sense of adventure. Inspired by revolutionary ideals and a desire for a unified Italy, he joined various nationalist movements in South America, where he fought in the Uruguayan Civil War and Ragamuffin War. These experiences honed his military skills and fostered his reputation as a skilled and fearless commander.

Returning to Italy in 1848, Garibaldi actively participated in the Risorgimento movement, which aimed to liberate and unify the Italian states. He organized and led a volunteer army known as the Redshirts and launched a series of military campaigns across Italy. His victories, including the Siege of Rome, earned him widespread admiration and support. Garibaldi's most notable military campaign took place in southern Italy, known as the Expedition of the Thousand in 1860. With a force of just over a thousand volunteers, he successfully captured Sicily and marched northward, gaining support from local populations along the way. His triumphal entry into Naples marked a turning point in the struggle for Italian unification.

Despite Garibaldi's military achievements, he was always willing to set aside personal ambition for the greater goal of a unified Italy. In 1861, he willingly handed over his conquests to King Victor Emmanuel II of Sardinia, who later became the first king of a united Italy. Garibaldi retired from active politics but remained an influential and revered figure.

Later in his life, Garibaldi became involved in various political and social causes. He advocated for social justice, universal suffrage, and the rights of workers. He also championed the cause of republicanism. Giuseppe Garibaldi passed away on June 2, 1882, in Caprera, Italy. His death sparked a wave of national mourning, and he was hailed as the "Hero of Two Worlds" for his military exploits in both South America and Italy.

Battle vs. Geronimo (by Omnicube1)[]

Geronimo is performing a healing ritual around the tribal fire to heal the wounded from a recent battle against white settlers. Rifle fire rings out and a wounded warrior is struck in the head. Innocent tribe-members flee and scream in terror. Giuseppe Garibaldi smirks as he pulls back the bolt on his Dreyse Needle Gun. Geronimo makes his stand and draws his Winchester Model 1876 and fires at the shadowy figure just above the hill. The bullets fly by as Giuseppe steps forward and unloads the rifle bullets he carries. As he tries to reload, Geronimo drops his lever-action rifle and draws his Apache Bow and Arrow. He lets to arrows fly simultaneously. One strikes Garibaldi in the lower calf but he snaps it in two and proceeds forward, Akimbo Leone Revolvers in both of his hands. He fires one after another. Geronimo is struck in the shoulder and falls back in pain. He musters his strength, aims his bow, and fires another arrow at Giuseppe. The arrow takes the hat off of the Italian's head. As he tries to pick up his hat, Geronimo charges at him with his Tomahawk. He takes a swing but Garibaldi nimbly draws his Sabre and deflects the blow. Garibaldi hacks and stabs but the crafty Native American slips by them. Geronimo counters by kicking Giuseppe in the stomach and slashes at his chest. The blade pierces skin and blood is shed. Garibaldi collapses to his knees. Believing he is severely wounded, Geronimo steps toward the Italian, drops his Tomahawk, and offers his hand. Giuseppe mutters, "Babbeo" and grabs Geronimo's arm and pulls him toward him. Garibaldi grabs his Double-Barrel Flintlock Pistol and fires. The lead ball pierces the medicine man's stomach. He collapses and blood spills from his lips. Spectating tribesmen and women gaze and horror. Several make their way to their leader's body and carry it away to the forest. Realizing what he has done, Garibaldi breaks down and mourns the death of his opponent.
