AUCTION 24


322.    

[MONTERREY, BATTLE OF]. SANTA-ANNA, Antonio López de. Satisfaccion que dá á la vindicta pública y á sus compañeros de armas, el teniente coronel del séptimo regimiento de caballería D. Juan Fernandez, por la acusacion que de él se hizo en los ultimos sucesos de Monterrey, al ser atacada aquella plaza por los invasores norte-americanos. Orden general del 21 al 22 de Enero de 1847. [San Luis Potosí]: Imprenta del Estado en Palacio, á cargo de V. Carrillo, [1847]. Dated in type January 21, 1847. Broadside: 32.5 x 22.5 cm. Right margin slightly chipped, light marginal staining. Rare. No copies on OCLC.

First edition. Eberstadt 203. Garrett & Goodwin, p. 500.

Fernández issued this broadside of Santa-Anna’s order in efforts to clear his name and those of his comrades in arms, accused of apparent misdeeds at the battle. It prints the text of General Santa-Anna’s decree concerning the colonel and five other officers for the loss of Monterrey. Santa-Anna declares that his investigators have found nothing wrong in the men’s conduct and that they are “en absoluta libertad, y en pleno goce de todos los derechos que tenian antes de ser encausados.” A rare look inside the military operations at the battle and an instance of Santa-Anna in a forgiving mood.
