Example text

Hopes were high for a period of peace and enlightenment. Freedom of the press was granted in the new constitution, and there were expanded educational opportunities for the country’s children. Victoria was revered by the Mexican people and named Benemérito de la Patria (“Hero of the Country”) by the Mexican congress after he died in 1843. During Victoria’s presidency, Santa Anna settled into the area between Xalapa and Veracruz, where he bought the hacienda Manga de Clavo. He gained regional prestige and was appointed governor from 1827 to 1829, further cementing his position in the region.

His battalion then defeated other rebel forces in two battles in May. These first three events earned Santa Anna the attention of his superior officers, and he was cited for distinguished service on the battlefield. Santa Anna came to be known for his determination, high energy, and stubbornness. He may have picked up these traits from serving with Arredondo, who continued to push his men from one battle to the next, vanquishing insurgent bands at every opportunity. During one of these skirmishes, this time against the Indians in the region of Amoladeras at the end of August 1811, Santa Anna received his first battle wound when an arrow pierced his left hand.

In fact, he took something of a break from life in the public eye between 1825 and 1827. He seemed content to spend his time running his hacienda. He had also recently been married to a young woman from an influential Spanish family. Eventually, Santa Anna was the major landowner in the areas of Xalapa and Veracruz, providing jobs to many residents of the area and growing most of the region’s produce and cattle. It was during this time that Santa Anna became the caudillo of Veracruz—a man of power and influence.
