News of the French Revolution and the American Revolutionary War brought liberal ideas to Latin America. After the French seized powerin Spain, Buenos Aires formed its own junta on May 25, 1810 and invited the other provinces to join. It declared its independence in 1811. Military campaigns led by General José de San Martín between 1814 and 1817 made independence increasingly a reality. In 1816, a Congress gathered in Tucuman and finally issued a formal declaration of independence from Spain. The United Kingdom officially recognized Argentine independence in 1825, with the signing of a Treaty of Friendship, Commerce, and Navigation on February 2.
