    Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna: Signed Battlefield Orders from the Mexican War. In Spanish, two pages, 9.75" x 7.5", Encero (Santa Anna's hacienda), April 6, 1847. These field orders calling for reinforcements to be sent toward the U.S. Army were written after the fall of Vera Cruz, just before the Battle of Cerro Gordo and General Winfield Scott's march on Mexico City. Boldly signed in full "Ant. Lopez de Santa Anna". Very good condition, trimmed at edges, with original folds, a 3.5" tear repaired on verso with archival tape, and small nicks on the bottom edge.
