Giuseppe Garabaldi was an Italian soldier during the 1800s, who was sent to South America for political asylum. He fought for Rio Grande against Brazil, and fought for Uruguay against Argentina. He married in 1839, a woman he met in SA named Anita.
He returned to Italy at behest of the Pope, and was eventually paid by King Vittorio Eduarda to unite Italy. Starting with Sicily and going north, he did; thus we have Italy today.
Mr. Garabaldi. Hero of two worlds. Interesting. As someone who's familiar with Bab-5, I must wonder if this 'baggage' is intended for the fictional chief of security in 2258-2262. Fascinating none-the-less
