  Summary
On 17th August, this holiday commemorates the death of Jose de San Martin

Celebrated on the third Monday in August, this holiday commemorates the death of José de San Martín.

San Martin is regarded as the most important Argentinian founding father, who liberated not only a part of Argentina but also helped liberate Chile and Peru along with O'Higgins and Bolívar.

José Francisco de San Martín y Matorras (25th February 1778 – 17th August 1850) was an Argentine general and the principal leader of the successful struggle for independence from Spain by the southern nations of South America.

Together with Simón Bolívar in the north, San Martín is regarded as one of the Liberators of Spanish South America.

He is regarded as a national hero in Argentina, Chile and Peru.

Historical figures such as San Martín are remembered on the anniversary of their death, rather than their birth.

The Order of the Liberator General San Martin, named in his honour, is the highest decoration in Argentina.
