10+ Colombian History Books for Free! [PDF]

To increase our collection of free books, we selected another topic of interest. This time we will share a list of books in PDF format on the History of Colombia.

In 1499 the first Spanish expeditions arrived in Colombian territory along the Atlantic coast, but the colonization process began in 1509. This marked a drastic change in the life of the indigenous peoples. With the increasing advance of the Spaniards on Colombian territory, various settlements were built and the territory was ordered according to the interests of the conquerors.

Then, during the 19th century, great changes took place in Colombia, the country went from being a dependency of Spain to an independent country, thanks to the wars of independence, then continued with the political processes to form an independent nation. The following decade can be divided into four phases: the Foolish Fatherland, the Nariño Campaign in the south, the Reconquest and the War of Independence, which was a decisive triumph in July 1819, and on August 7, with the defeat of the Royalist Army, Colombia’s independence was sealed.
