The uprising in northern New Mexico in August 1837 resulted in the death of the governor and sixteen of his officials. This rebellion was both an armed protest and a fundamental threat to the government, yet until now it has never been recreated using accounts left by the participants. From the documents they left, the author unravels the complex social and political events surrounding the uprising. As a form of protest, rebellions often broke out in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century in Spanish America. These uprisings were early stirrings of what turned into the independence movement after 1810. But the northern frontier of Mexico remained peaceful during that era of turbulence in Spain's empire. In New Mexico local conditions were little affected by Mexico's independence for the first fifteen years of the republic. Then in 1836 Mexico sent to Santa Fe a new governor, Albino Perez. Shortly after his arrival he proclaimed a new constitution, replaced officials, and announced his intention to collect taxes. The turmoil that erupted over Perez's actions is the subject of Rebellion in Rio Arriba, 1837.
