Broadsides from Mexico Collection, 1676-1927 (bulk 1820-1927).

The broadsides are divided into two series, the first organized by state and the second organized by departments of the federal government. The first series is arranged alphabetically by state, and chronologically thereafter. The second series contains folders for departments of the federal government which are filed alphabetically, and thereafter chronologically. In the front of the first folder for each state or department are photocopies of the processor's notes for the folder's contents. The finding aid identifies the content for each folder including subjects of the broadsides, selected names of individuals, and span dates for the materials in the folder. Note that a number of oversized broadsides are located in flat files. Contains about 2,000 state and federal Mexican broadsides, publicly distributed documents, issued by various offices of the federal, state, municipal, and local governments during the 19th and early 20th-centuries. Topics referred to in these broadsides include invasions by Spain, France and the United States of America; mobilization for wars, including the Mexican American War; soldiers; elections; government positions; decretos (decrees); courts; prisoners; and financial issues, such as taxes, budgets, and customs. Often the broadsides in the individual state folders contain information from the federal government which the governor of the state released and signed. Some documents refer to the political conflicts between those who supported the Roman Catholic Church and those who advocated rigorous anti-clericalism. Also included are specific Plans, a 19th-century aspect of Mexican political culture whereby a military or political leader would publish a Plan, usually named after where it was issued, and gauge response to it. Selected individuals mentioned in the broadsides include: Gilardo Gomez, Alberto Betancourt, J. Trinidad Alamillo, Antonio Lopez de Santa Ana, Augustine de Iturbide, Anastasio Bustamante, and Benito Juarez.
