Acevedo was born in Salta and studied in Córdoba, following an ecclesiastical career at the Montserrat School. He was ordained a priest on 8 December 1794 and served in Cachi, then Molinos in Salta Province, and later in Belén, Catamarca Province.
In 1815 Acevedo was elected by Catamarca to the Tucumán Congress and served in 1816 for the declaration. He supported the idea of a constitutional Incan monarchy. After the Congress moved to Buenos Aires, he served as president of the body. He then returned to his parish in Belén. In 1824 he again represented Catamarca in the General Congress.

Famous quotes containing the words manuel and/or antonio:
“And Manuel embraced his mother and they laughed together: Déliras laugh sounded surprisingly young; that was because she hadnt really had the chance to make it heard; life was just not happy enough for that. No, she never had time to use it; she had kept it fresh as can be, like a birdsong in an old nest.”
—Jacques Roumain (19071945)
“Socialism can only arrive by bicycle.”
—José Antonio Viera Gallo (b. 1943)
