Regarding House of Manuel Doblado. Manuel Vicente Ramón Doblado (b. San Pedro Piedra Gorda (today Ciudad Manuel Doblado), Guanajuato, Mexico, June 2, 1818 - d. New York, New York, June 19, 1865) was a Mexican lawyer, member of the military, diplomat and politician who participated during the Reform Wars.

General Doblado was governor of Guanajuato and was the Minister of Foreign Relations from 1861 to 1862, during the government of Benito Juárez. During his time he negotiated with the British diplomats to negotiate the debt of the Mexican government. He worked on the Corwin-Doblado Treaty whose objective was that the United States would pay off the Mexican debt to the British, providing as a guarantee the nationalized assets and mines in the northwest of Mexico. This treaty never materialized and consequently

never came into effect. This caused great losses and delays in the economy, along with more foreign debt.

He negotiated with the representatives of the Tripartite Alliance - made up of Spain, France and England - who demanded the payment of Mexico's debt and eventually took over the ports of Veracruz and Tampico. He negotiated the Treaty of Soledad, along with General Juan Prim, which the French did not respect, thus initiating the Second French Intervention in Mexico. In the federal elections of Mexico of 1861 he participated as a candidate for the presidency, but was defeated overwhelmingly by the president Benito Juárez. He continued to fight with Juárez, but after many defeats he sought exile in New York. He died there in 1865. Adapted from Wikipedia
