He returned to Italy in 1854 when Cavour allowed him to.In 1860, Garibaldi achieved what anybody expected. Along with his army, Garibaldi took over Sicily. He crossed to Italy's mainland and continued to go north. He conquered Naples by defeating the king's army. His conquests were well known in Italy and throughout the world.Garibaldi continued moving north and attempted to conquer more regions. He led an expedition to capture Rome in 1867, but unfortunately French troops stopped him. It is believed that Cavour was envious of Garibaldi's conquests that he sent troops to stop him. When Cavour met with Garibaldi in Naples, Garibaldi agreed to support Victor Emmanuel II as king of the united Italy. His request of being governor of Naples got refused by Cavour and the king. Much later Garibaldi declared himself a socialist when he finally got disillusioned with the politics of Italy.In conclusion, I can say that Garibaldi was one of the greatest leaders Italy has had in all times. His expeditions throughout Italy were very successful as well as his ideas. Although he was a great leader, I think that he would have been better if Cavour wouldn't have been rejecting his ideas.
