To arms then, to arms, to secure the fruits of our glorious revolution – to fight the last battle of independence and the Italian Union. In the other Austrian-controlled state, Venetia, a small-scale revolt persuaded the Austrians to surrender, and the Independent Venetian Republic of St Mark was proclaimed in March 1849. Its rapidly elected assembly voted for union with Piedmont.

Tobacco was an Austrian state monopoly and the people of Milan believed that if they stopped smoking then Austrian finances would be seriously affected.

The commander-in-chief of the Austrian forces in Italy, the 81-year-old General Radetzky (remembered now for the march tune bearing his name) decided to withdraw from the city, not because he was defeated, but because the situation in Austria had changed dramatically.
