General Francisco Morazan [1792 - 1842] Central American statesman. He was elected President of Central America for two terms in the 1830s, struggling to keep the uneasy federation united against the many rebellions against his government. He introduced constitutional reforms and separated Church and State and is still honoured by liberals in Central America. He is regarded as a national hero in Honduras, where he was born.
