Sample text

Paralleling the events of 1833–1834, Santa Anna left the vice president, Valentı´n Go´ mez Farı´as, in charge of the government while he organized the defense of the Republic and departed to fight the Americans in the northern towns of Saltillo and Angostura. With the Mexican economy in a state of complete disarray, Go´ mez Farı´as attempted to raise the necessary revenue to finance the war by demanding a forced contribution of 15 million pesos from the Church (11 January 1847). The Church responded by financing the Revolt of the Polkos (February 1847), which resulted in Santa Anna’s removing Go´ mez Farı´as from office in circumstances that mirrored those of 1834.

Having said this, two recent and extremely popular studies continue to sustain the traditional view of the liberal-conservative conflict: Enrique Gonza´ lez Pedrero, Paı´s de un solo hombre: el Me´ xico de Santa Anna, vol. 1 (Mexico City: Fondo de Cultura Econo´ mica, 1993); and Enrique Krauze, Siglo de caudillos (Barcelona: Tusquets Editores, 1994). 14. David Brading, The Origins of Mexican Nationalism (Cambridge: Centre of Latin American Studies, 1985), p. 70. 15. Charles A. Hale, El liberalismo mexicano en la e´ poca de Mora, 1821–1853 (Mexico City: Siglo XXI Editores, 1987).

However, in reality, little comfort was obtained from Santa Anna’s courageous exploits in Veracruz. In the negotiations that ensued, peace was only achieved after the Mexican government agreed to pay almost the entire sum the French had initially demanded. To make matters worse, a number of radical federalists led by General Jose´ Urrea and Colonel Jose´ Antonio Mejı´a decided to take advantage of the French Pastry War to launch a federalist offensive against the government with the pronunciamientos of Tampico (of 7 October 1838 and 22 January 1839) in the hope that the Seven Laws would be replaced by the Federal Constitution of 1824.
