The Sovereign State of Puebla[edit]

While the Revolt of Querétaro was ongoing, the province of Puebla declared itself a sovereign state, installing a government composed of Brigadier José María Calderón; Manuel Posada Garduño, who was later appointed Archbishop of Mexico; and others.

State response[edit]

To repress this independent proclamation, the Mexican government decided to send 800 soldiers under Manuel Gómez Pedraza and the division commanded by General Vicente Guerrero. Both forces restored the provincial order. Once General José Antonio de Echávarri's involvement was discovered, gave his forces to Gómez Pedraza and went to the capital to refine his conduct.
