The Country’s Savior


381.    

SANTA-ANNA, Antonio López de. Antonio Lopez de Santa-Anna, General de Division, Benemèrito de la Patria, President Interino de la Republica, y General en Gefe del Ejercito de Operaciones del Norte, a sus subordinados. [San Luis Potosí, 1847]. Dated in type March 14 1847. Broadside: 31.5 x 21.5 cm. Creased where formerly folded, three small stains, slight wrinkling at bottom, otherwise fine.

First edition. Not in usual Mexican-American War sources.

States that he is taking over the reigns of government in an act of pure patriotism and is sending troops to Veracruz, an act that came a little too late since Scott had landed on March 9. A sadly typical bombastic pronouncement from the general.
