Regarding The Act of Patzicia. Liberal forces under Generals Barrios and Garcia Granados arrived from Mexico and other battles to Patzicia, very close to the Guatemalan capital of Guatemala City on June 3, 1871. They wrote a declaration, known as the Act of Patzicia, which declared that the Conservative government of Cerna was invalid. They soon moved on to San Lucas Sacatepéquez, the last battleground of the Liberal invasión of 1871.
