At the age of 16 he was imprisoned as a revolutionary by the Spanish authorities, but was soon released. He joined in 1818 the army of San Martin under whom he served as colonel throughout the Chilean War of Independence. Bulnes commanded the Chilean army in 1838 against Peru. After taking Lima and winning a few battles, he combined his forces with those of Gamarra to defeat Santa Cruz in 1839, thus putting an end to the confederation between Peru and Bolivia.
