Printed Document Signed In Type By Santa Anna Days Before The Taking of Veracruz And His Promotion To The Rank Of Brigadier GeneralPrinted Document. One page, 8 1/2"" x 12"", on laid paper. Veracruz. October 15, 1822. Signed in type by Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna. (1794-1876) Mexican political leader who greatly influenced Mexican and Spanish politics and government. During his forty year career, Santa Anna rose to the rank of both general and president. Over a period of twenty-two years, Santa Anna served as President of Mexico on eleven non-consecutive occasions. The Spanish document concerns a two percent tax placed upon gold and silver in relation to a loan of six hundred thousand pesos. Very Fine.
On October 25, 1822 Santa Anna would take control of Veracruz under orders from Mexico’s Emperor Iturbide. For this successful operation, Santa Anna was named brigadier general and Commander of the Province of Veracruz by Iturbide. Iturbide soon grew suspicious of Santa Anna’s power, quickly removing him from his command and ordering him to join the Junta de Guerra in Mexico City. Santa Anna refused to follow this order and instead returned to Veracruz where he proclaimed a Mexican Republic and declared Iturbide’s reign invalid in early December of 1822. With support growing quickly for a Mexican Republic, Iturbide was forced to abdicate on March 19, 1823. A fine document from an important period in the early life of Santa Anna.
