TABOADA, Antonio (tah-bo'-ah-dah), Argentine soldier, born in the province of Santiago del Estero, 31 August, 1815. He began life as a journalist, and, being persecuted for his liberal tendencies by the dictator Rosas, emigrated to Montevideo. He served later under General Lavalle, took part in the campaign in the province of Entre-Rios, was captured after the defeat at Quebracho-Herrade, and imprisoned in Buenos Ayres, but escaped in disguise to Chili. Later he returned secretly to his province, where he lived quietly till Rosas's downfall, and in 1852 became its governor. He put down an insurrection at Tucuman, and defeated with a few hundred men a division of 5,000 under General Gutierrez. In 1856 he escorted through the Chac5 desert the United States exploring expedition under Lieutenant Thomas J. Page, and they explored the Salado river as far as Santa Fe, Taboada concluding also in the course of the voyage arrangements with the principal caciques that assured peace along the borders. In 1861 he supported Dr. Derqui and contributed to terminate the strife between the governors of the provinces and the central government. He was elected senator in 1865, and commanded the army in 1867 against the insurgents in the northern provinces, defeating Felipe Varela at Pozo de Vargas. In 1868 he was a candidate for president, but was defeated.
