Perón Is Dead, but Not Resting: Paternity Suit Is PendingBreaking News
The leaders of the Peronist movement and the labor unions affiliated with it have announced two days of ceremonies to transfer the general’s remains, ending Oct. 17, the anniversary of the populist uprising that carried him to power in 1945. Some have even threatened to defy the court should they be stymied there, where the struggle now rages.
In 2004, Peronist leaders began building the $1.3 million mausoleum for their leader at San Vicente, a 47-acre retreat in suburban Buenos Aires Province that the general and his second wife, Evita, acquired in 1946. A museum honoring the couple now occupies the property, which Perón always said was the site of some of his happiest memories.
