    Pedro de Ampudia Printed Decree Regarding the Battle of Monterrey. One page, folio, Monterrey, September 14, 1846. During the Mexican-American War, General Pedro de Ampudia and the Mexican Army of the North managed to fight U.S. troops to a temporary standstill at the important fortress town of Monterrey, but eventually they were forced to surrender their position. With this decree, he notifies the city of Monterrey and the people of Nuevo León that they will be compensated for damages incurred in fighting and resisting the United States Army. Unfortunately, de Ampudia's efforts were in vain, and he was forced to surrender the city to General Zachary Taylor on September 23, 1846. Creamy overall age toning, with a few small chips and creases at extreme edges. Five punch holes along left edge. Very fine. From the Taking of Texas Collection.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
