Part 5 of 7: In the Austro-Prussian War and Afterward
Continued from part 4
Italy did annex Venetia, though this was due not to its own military prowess but to Prussia's. Garibaldi's success in Trentino was for nought.
Garibaldi now led a political party that agitated for the capture of Rome, the peninsula's ancient capital. In 1867, he again marched on the city, but the Papal army, supported by a French auxiliary force, proved a match for his badly-armed volunteers. He was taken prisoner, held captive for a time, and then again returned to Caprera. French troops withdrew from Rome in 1870, and the Italians captured the Papal States without Garibaldi's assistance.
During the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-1871, he led a force of volunteers in support of the new French republic.
