DescriptionThe doctor and politician Carlos Barbosa Gonçalves experienced a political career of relief during the First Republic. During this period, he held the positions of state deputy, state president and senator. However, we believe that the political success experienced during the republican period was only possible by the rise of the Rio-grandense Republican Party (PRR) to power – occasioned by the Proclamation of the Republic – and also because Barbosa had the necessary requirements for it. Thus, the objective of this work is to investigate which resources (economic, political, social and symbolic) Barbosa inherited and committed himself to acquire so that he could occupy the position of local political leader of Jaguarão, as well as to succeed in other political spheres during the republican period. For this to be possible, we analyzed – through many types of sources – different moments, both from Gonçalves da Silva and Barbosa. Regarding the family history, we investigated the family's relations with Jaguarão and the Farrapos War, as well as the familiar economic situation. When we deal specifically with Barbosa, we accompany him in his studies in Rio de Janeiro, in republican propaganda in Jaguarão, and also in medical practice.
