Description[Mexican War]. Pedro de Ampudia Broadside Outlawing Aid or Trade With the Enemy. One page, 8.8" x 12.75". Monterey; August 31, 1846. Serving as commander in chief of the Army of the North, Ampudia issues an order that anyone found to be a traitor to the nation or serving as spy to the enemy will suffer the penalty of death. In addition to listing the specific infractions, Ampudia states that the broadside will serve to promote action among the public. Having read the widely distributed broadside, the public must report all infractions and apprehend any wrongdoers. Wide margins, with a few pinholes of paper loss; otherwise near fine.
Pedro de Ampudia (1803-1868), a native of Cuba, served in the Mexican artillery at the Siege of the Alamo and was involved in the Battle of San Jacinto during the Texas Revolution. A career army officer, he continued hostilities against Texas into the 1840s, being briefly named commander in chief of the Army of the North in 1846. Ampudia was defeated at the Battle of Monterrey three weeks after the date of this broadside, lost his command, and was placed in administration. He commanded artillery at the Battle of Buena Vista in 1847 and, following the war, supported Benito Juarez during the French Intervention in Mexico.
