From 1849 to 1851 there were three abortive filibustering expeditions from the United States, two being under a Spanish general, Narciso Lopez (1798-1851).
Jose Antonio Lavalle and Narciso Arestegui are chiefly known as novelists.
In 1851 he interposed promptly but ineffectively in thwarting the projects of the " filibusters," under Narciso Lopez for the invasion of Cuba.

Crittenden, members of the Bahia Honda filibustering expedition of Narciso Lopez, were shot at Fort Atares in 1851.
At the same time a revolution in La Paz proclaimed General Narciso Campero president, and he was elected to that post in the following June by the ordinary procedure of the constitution.
