Texas, using the chaos in Mexico as a pretext, declared independence in 1836.Although his failure to suppress the Texas revolution enormously discredited him, Santa Anna was able to reestablish much of his authority when he defeated a French invasion force at Vera Cruz in 1838. nevertheless, he remained the most powerful individual in Mexico until 1853, when his sale of millions of acres in what is now southern Arizona and New Mexico to the United States united liberal opposition against him.
Perhaps two of the most pivotal rebellions in western history are the ones fought in France and the The United States.
