BARRIOS, Gerardo (bah'-re-os), president of Salvador, born in that country; executed in August 1865. His administration was noted for its liberal and progressive character. In 1859 President Barrios reestablished the government in the city of San Salvador, which had been abandoned for some time on account of earthquakes; and between that time and 1861 the new civil, criminal, and penal codes were prepared and promulgated. Education, commerce, and public works had the special attention of Barrios, and the foreign debt was paid. A war with Guatemala resulted in the fall of Barrios, who was replaced by Duenas. While trying to effect a revolution, in order to become president again, he was captured in Nicaragua, sent to Salvadot, tried by court-martial, and shot.
