Garibaldi is the only man standing, and he is pacing, as does a man of action when he is reflective, waiting to go to the king and Cavour. The prophetic nature of the scene is twofold: Dumas, without as much as introducing himself, predicts the future success of an expedition in Sicily for Garibaldi and Garibaldi, in turn, recognizes Dumas without having been told his identity.
Is this a case of self-appointment by Dumas or an official appointment on the part of a Garibaldi who is hungry for publicity? Dumas wishes to paint himself as both witness and close friend of the hero, as both an agent and indispensable link in the chain, while all the while serving as a historical polygraph. With the embarkation of the Garibaldian volunteers at Quarto of Genoa during the night between May 5th and 6 , the triumphal entry, albeit scarcely military in nature — he arrived by train — of Garibaldi in Naples on September 7th, and the surrender of the Bourbon troops following their defeat on the Volturno on October 2nd, Garibaldi and his men wrote some of the most glorious pages of their collective epic after the defense of Gianicolo.

Therefore, Alexandre Dumas participates quite early on in this celebration. Up until then, the most noted text was Les Garibaldiens. Between these two events which serve as bookends to the narrative, Dumas recounts, as a an eye witness and privileged confidant, the principle episodes of the crossing and conquering of the island and of the political and military events which preceded the arrival of the volunteers in Naples. This story constitutes a large part of the military chapters of Viva Garibaldi.
A sign that Dumas intended to substitute his traveler's garb for the red shirts of the Garibaldians. Dumas the Garibaldian face-to-face with his hero. In order to paint his own self-portrait as a Garibaldian, Dumas presents himself as the historian of the epopee by representing himself as a faithful follower of Garibaldi before proclaiming himself supplementary volunteer to a political endeavor to which, like many of his contemporaries and French compatriots, artists, and writers of romantic provenance, he adheres and in which believes.
From the moment in which Garibaldi entrusted him with his manuscript, in January , gathering written and oral information became an obsession. It is not clear which task takes priority for Dumas: carrying out the translation of the Memorie or continuing to work on a biographical work which would be truly original.
Garibaldi entrusted Bertani with the task of helping Dumas. As some of the unpublished documents from their correspondence testify, it is a serious matter. As such, his recounting of the expedition of the Mille gives a lot of space to second-hand testimonies, subsequently re-written by Dumas. For the last weeks of August and the first ones of September the different registers of narration tied to the varying nature of the testimony mix more often as if to accelerate the dramatic rhythm of the story.
But the historian Dumas also likes testimony in the form of correspondence. Obviously, one may and one should call into question the authenticity of these texts, even more so than in the case of the oral testimonies which were immediately remodeled by Dumas. Here he is evoking his grotesque clothing: ornate hat with red, white, and blue feathers. We will not return to discuss polemics surrounding the facts. It is clear that is impossible to read a literary text in the same objective and probably equally inadequate way that one deciphers any other defined source, even when it functions as a testimony.
We should note however that one quite often finds excerpts in the correspondence and documents of Garibaldi which have been cited with great accuracy by Dumas. We should also remember that the author of Viva Garibaldi defines history above all as a well written text to be used for pedagogy as well as for political ends.

Beginning, in fact, with this mass of documents, Dumas deconstructs his role as a historian by creating and elaborating on the already concluded dramatic narrative while separately representing it in journals in the form of articles. Writing is the first objective of the author. A task which he has no problem carrying out on the spot in the form of chronicles and the reportage for the press, some of which will actually be published. But his love of writing and his need — also in financial terms — to publish never transgress his great affinity for the Italian cause incarnated in the figure of Garibaldi.
Dumas is faithful and completely adherent to the Garibaldian cause: his portrait of the Bourbon supporters is always negative. Likewise, Dumas censures the culpable inertness of Cavour and his emissaries. Only Garibaldi and his men, to which one may also add the soldiers who desertered the Bourbon army, remain un-criticized.
Therefore, before , whenever Alexandre Dumas spoke of Garibaldi he did it as an admirer: unconditioned, sure, but whose only tie was a fruitful ten year literary relationship.

For Dumas, as for many others, Garibaldi is more than the symbol of this land of the living. He is the one who brings Italy to life; makes it aware. It is therefore urgent that he gets close to this man who awakes the dead. Dumas insists on his proximity to the living hero. He expresses a sense of fraternal friendship which ties one to the other from their first encounter. And so the sentiment is mutual. Garibaldi would even shout out in joy upon seeing him again for the first time in Palermo, telling him how much he had missed him. As far as the effusive behavior and the hugs, we know all too well how typical they were of the customs and the writing of the 19th century to mistakenly overvalue their significance.
Two observations allow us to proceed beyond the certainty of mere banalities. The only friends he mentions are fellow combatants and even towards them he demonstrates a paucity of sentiment. Moreover, if Dumas insists on the friendship which Garibaldi lavishes upon him, he is on the other hand very careful not to overly present the relationship as reciprocal. In spite of the vanity of which the author is accused, he does not exaggeratedly dwell on the immediate expression of his own sentiments of friendship in relation to Garibaldi: he understood that the dynamic of the generous and providential hero works in an asymmetrical manner.
Once you have been admitted into the circle of friends, it is enough to demonstrate that you are the object of the attention of the great man. There is no need to insist if not only on your own sense of gratitude.
