[Battle of Pueblo Viejo] and [Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna]. Broadside Presidential Decree Announcing a Monument Honoring Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna. Single sheet, 12.25" x 16.5". At top: "El Ciudadano Ramon Rayon, General de Brigada y Gobernador del Distrito federal." A broadside issued by Brigadier General Ramon Rayon conveying a presidential decree as follows: "The Citizen Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, General in command of the Mexican Army in Tampico, is a National Hero" and that "his name will be recorded on a column built on the site where the Spanish surrendered their arms, with this inscription: 'On the shores of Panuco, he secured the national independence on September 11, 1829.'" The decree was issued on May 23, 1835, and the broadside offered here was issued on May 28, 1835.

    Although Mexico had secured her independence from Spain in 1821, Spain continued to attempt to reconquer Mexico for years to come. The Battle of Pueblo Viejo (which took place on September 10 and 11, 1829) would mark the end of their attempts. It was Santa Anna's troops that dealt the final blow when his forces defeated General Barradas. However, the timing of this decree had more to do with politics. Acting president Miguel Barragán had just succeeded Santa Anna as president 5 months prior to this decree.

    Condition: Very clean, bright paper. With three horizontal folds and a few lettered notations at top made by a previous collector.
