    Description

    Saltillo - Military Document Signed by Miguel Guerra. One page, 8.25" x 12", Saltillo, February 2, 1834. This document contains two orders from Guerra received at the garrison at Saltillo during January 1834. The first order situates a group of cavalry to help local authorities. The second order furnishes a trusted soldier to each authority figure as an armed assistant to live at their homes. These orders calling for extra protection were probably a reaction to the fomenting revolution and Indian incursions. Saltillo was the capital of Coahuila and Texas from 1824 until the March previous to the issuance of these orders, and a very important military garrison was located at that point. Fine condition. From the Taking of Texas Collection.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
