Alsina wis born in Buenos Aires and studiet law at the Varsity o Córdoba. He occupee'd diverse posts in govrenment, an haed a successful ceevil career as a advocate an professor o law at the Varsity o Buenos Aires.

Poleetical views[eedit | eedit soorce]

Unner the govrenment o Juan Manuel de Rosas, he haed tae leave the kintra, as his leeberal ideas did no please the dictator at aw. Frae his refuge in Montevideo, he supportit the opposition against de Rosas, baith financially an throu publications.

When Rosas wis deposed bi Justo José de Urquiza, Alsina returned tae Buenos Aires, an he wis electit provincial govrenor in 1852. Housomeivver, he resigned efter a few months, shortly afore a militar coup teuk place. In 1853, Buenos Aires left the Argentine Confederation an declared itsel an unthirlt state. Alsina, a fervent supporter o Buenos Aires Province unthirldom, became govrenor again in 1857. In 1859, open hostilities breuk oot atween Buenos Aires an the Argentine Confederation, led bi Urquiza. Efter the defeat o the Buenos Aires airmy at the Battle o Cepeda on 23 October 1859, Alsina haed tae resign his post, an shortly efter Buenos Aires rejoined the Confederation. Alsina became a member o the Argentine Senate in 1862.

When Bartolomé Mitre (Preses o Argentinae atween 1862 an 1868) affered him a position as member o the Argentine Supreme Court he refused an remained servin as a Senator till his daith, which occurred juist a few months efter he teuk the oath o his son Adolfo Alsina, who became Vice Preses o Argentinae in 1868.
