In 1829, Santa Anna gained much prestige when he fought against Spain’s attempt to reconquer Mexico, and earned the title Hero of Tampico. This glory gained him favor in 1833, as he ran for presidency as a Federalist and opponent of the Roman Catholic Church. He established a centralised state.
Cuba is a narrow island located in Caribbean. Cuba became part of the colonies of Spain in 16th century. After the Spanish- American War in 1898, Cuba seems successfully struggled for their independence; however, it actually came under United States’ (US) tutelage for more than 50 years.

This adversely affected the entire society of Cuba in political, economic and social aspect.
The republic of Chile initially declared its independence from Spain on September 18th, 1810, a day on which Chileans still celebrate their independence. In the ensuing centuries, Chile underwent a number of governmental changes, experimented with a variety of regime types, and eventually emerged as the strong, if troubled, democracy that exists today. The story of Chilean democracy is a story of evolving constitutions, each of which has left its mark on Chilean politics. Although Chileans first asserted their independence in 1810, true liberation did not come until 1818, after a number of bloody battles with Spanish troops. Following emancipation from colonial rule, Chilean politics were marred by deep ideological tensions, civil war, and the failure to impose meaningful democratic structures or institutions; each of which served as an obstacle to stable or legitimate government.

While all of this is happening with the church Mexico ends up gaining its independence from Spain in 1822 which made the push for secularization of the missions even stronger. In 1834 the government of Mexico granted secularization of the churches but unfortunately this did not end well for the Indians. Soon after the land was turned over to the Native Americans, many ended up losing their land to speculators, fraud, and thieves; eventually priests take over most of the missions again. In 1850 California joins the union as a free state which leads to priests taking over Mission Santa Clara again in
Subordinate political jurisdictions developed strong regional characteristics as a results of isolation, that fostered intense local loyalties and rivalries. The culture of Colombia blends influences from the Spanish settlers, the native tribes who inhabited the area before Spanish colonization, and also the slaves imported
It would also imply an immediate effect of war and death. These are all effects of the 1973 Chilean Coup D’etat (Latin America's Wars Volume II: The Age of the Professional Soldier, 1900-2001), which was sponsored and assisted by the United States. The coup, although successful in its execution, was a failure regarding all aspects after its occurrence. This involvement has been denied in part by the Central Intelligence Agency, yet documents have been released by the United States government, which contradict these statements, such as the Military Coup Planning for Morning of 11 Sept Secret (National Security Archive), which explicitly states that the military coup will rely on United States support. This presents the first large-scale problem within this event; if a country is doing something right, why should they hide it?
The Treaty of Paris was signed after the Seven Years War, this not only granted more land to England and Spain, but It also helped established boundaries. As a result, France gave Canada to the British, Britain received the sugar hill islands and the British received land east of the Mississippi River. In return Spain gave Florida to Britain and they returned the philipinees and Cuba back to Spain. New world possessions play a pivotal role because after The Seven Years War balance was shifted and ties were severed between the British and Native Americans. Tensions were running high and they ultimately resulted in a rebellion.
In 1835, when the proposed reforms infuriated vested interests in the army and church, Santa Anna seized the opportunity to reassert his authority, and led a military coup against his own government. In 1836 Antonio Lopez De Santa Anna was captured by sam houston. 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. At the beginning of the Mexican War, Santa Anna entered into negotiations with President James K. Polk. He offered the possibility of a negotiated settlement to the United States and was permitted to enter Mexico through the American blockade.
Beginning in the 18th century, colonial frustrations with the British monarchy intensified. For many decades, the colonists had been left to govern themselves in a process referred to as salutary neglect; however, after Britain went to war against France in 1754 colonial management of affairs would be stripped away. This would be the first spark of many that would inspire the American Revolution. Though the United States would experience significant changes in their government, economic system and social conditions, influences from their mother country would always be apparent. Before 1660, England had governed the Chesapeake and New England colonies loosely, allowing the colonies to develop their own system of government which regulated affairs.
