Geocache Description:

The simplest way to hide something is to put that object exactly under the views of everyone.

Nicolae Balcescu (June 29, 1819—November 29, 1852) was a Romanian Wallachian soldier, historian, journalist, and leader of the 1848 Wallachian Revolution.
In 1848, after taking part in the uprising in France, Balcescu returned to Bucharest in order to take part in the June 11th revolution. Balcescu was arrested on September 13 of that year by the authorities of the Ottoman Empire who had put an end to the Revolution; his relationship with the Ottomans was complicated by the fact that the radicals' strict opposition to Imperial Russia had made them reliable for the Porte - the Ottomans later allowed all participants in the events to take refuge in Istanbul, and thus avoid contact with the Russian troops sent over to assist the Ottoman presence. Balcescu initially made his way to Transylvania, but was expelled by Habsburg authorities, who considered him a threat and an agitator of Romanian sentiment in that region.
His final years saw an intense publishing activity. He died in Palermo (Italy) at 33 years of age.
