A scarce decree that reorganized the infantry and cavalry of the Mexican Army following the vicissitudes of the late 1830s. During this period Mexico lost Texas, rebuffed the French occupation of Veracruz, faced independence movements from the southern states of Yucatan and Chiapas, and put down two military rebellions against Santa Anna after his return from exile. The present decree follows an 1839 order that called for the formation of nine new regiments of infantry and six of cavalry. Only three infantry units and four cavalry units could be raised, and this order positioned them in states across central Mexico, makes provisions for their organization and command structure, and also includes redeployments of existing units to address the threats of ongoing unrest. OCLC locates four copies is U.S. institutions, at Berkeley, UC Riverside, Tulane, and the University of Chicago.
