Vicente Cerna y Cerna (1815 - 27 June 1885) was president of Guatemala from 24 May 1865 to 29 June 1871.[1] Loyal friend and comrade of Rafael Carrera, was appointed army's Field Marshall after Carraera's victory against Salvadorian leader Gerardo Barrios in 1863. He was appointed Carrera's successor after the caudillo's death in 1865 even though Guatemalan leaders would have preferred Field Marshal José Víctor Zavala.[2] After the presidential elections of 1869, that Cerna won over liberal candidate Zavala, there were severe fraud accusations, and from then on Cerna's presidency was marred by constant uprising until he was eventually ousted by the liberal leaders Miguel Garcia Granados and Justo Rufino Barrios on June 30, 1871[2]
