What a Coincidence

cavour.gif

Cavour was a very wealthy man not only that, but he was an aristocrat.  The only thing he wanted to do was expand the land and power of Piedmont-Sardinia.  In the process it was almost a coincidence he also made the unification of Italy a success.  In 1858 Cavour made a war with Austria.  Cavour soon got his wish of taking over northern Italy, but the Austrians got Venetia.  Cavour then decided to get the south too so he began his secret plot.  Until Giuseppe Garibaldi and the red Shirts.
