Also see . . .  Carlos de Bustamonte. In addition to his fame as a historian, primarily of the Mexican colonial period, he was also a firm supporter of Mexican independence and held many government positions, when he was not jailed or exiled by governments which he opposed. Before his death in 1848 he wrote a short analysis (El nuevo Bernal. Memorias de la guerra México-Estados Unidos) of the Mexican-American War, where he proposed that Santa Anna and others used the political chaos in Mexico as cover to lose the war for their personal benefit.
