TOGNETTI, Luis. The Dispute for Land Control in the Pampas Region of Cordoba, Argentina, during the Second Half of the 19th Century. Secuencia [online]. 2012, n.82, pp.13-39. ISSN 2395-8464.

This paper explores the conflict over the control of land seized at the border, located in the far southeast and south of Cordoba between 1860 and 1880. This land was brought under state sovereignty by the advance of the army during the '60s. The description of the fight for the control of land between the nation and the provinces highlights the fragility of the political order that emerged during the second half of the 19th century and the difficulty of arriving at a consensual solution to the problem. In particular, it analyzes the legal framework and complementary measures adopted by the Córdoba state to declare the land on the border government property. It also conducts a detailed analysis of the use that both the public sector and private individuals made of old colonial property deeds to expand the territory or appropriate the land.
