Santa-Anna denounces in the strongest, bitterest terms those who are blaming him for Mexico’s defeat and accusing him of being a traitor to the country. He defends the actions of his army and his own: “Respondan por mi Palo Alto, la Resaca, Matamoros, Monterrey, Nuevo-Mexico, Chihuahua, Californias, Veracruz, Tabasco y Padierna. Los soldados mexicanos habrémos sido desgraciados, mas ninguno traidor.... Soy hombre, y tendré defectos: pero nunca he pecado contra la patria.” He also blames the government for opposing him at various times.
