Scope and Content Note

Topics referred to in these broadsides include invasions by Spain, France and the United States of America; mobilization for wars, including the Mexican American War; soldiers; elections; government positions; decretos (decrees); courts; prisoners; and financial issues, such as taxes, budgets, and customs.

Also included are specific Plans, a 19th century aspect of Mexican political culture whereby a military or political leader would publish a Plan, usually named after where it was issued, and wait to see how many other political and military leaders would support it.
