A child of war

In the Sonderbund War of 1847, the liberal cantons defeated the conservatives.

The federal letter from the beginning of August 1291 is genuine. It is, however, a simple peace alliance between Uri, Schwyz and Nidwalden – a “confederation” of the kind that existed at the time. It was not until the 15th century that a broad network of alliances formed around the Waldstätte, Lucerne, Zurich and Bern in what is now Switzerland.

But not all places are directly linked to each other and they also ally themselves with others. In changing alliances they wage wars, fight over religion, export cheese, Calvinism and mercenaries. Until 1798 there was no federal treaty covering all cantons together. Only after the French invasion did the alliance receive a constitution and become the Helvetic Republic.
