Scarce account of this short-lived rebellion led by Juan Climaco Rebolledo in central Veracruz during the latter half of 1852. Rebolledo rose in opposition to President Mariano Arista, who was seeking extraordinary powers from Congress to address issues relating to land reform and land claims in Mexico. Unrest across the country such as the uprising in Veracruz led to the return of Santa Anna as dictator in 1853, and eventually to the Reform War at the end of the decade. The present pamphlet recounts the course of the revolt by printing government proclamations, orders, and communications regarding the conflict. OCLC locates copies at just six U.S. institutions.
