The Memoirs of Santa Anna


The Benson Latin American Collection and the Office of the Director of the Univeristy of Texas Libraries have jointly created this Collections Highlight online exhibition. This exhibition highlights Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna's memoirs during his final exile in Havana in 1872. Sometimes referred to as “the Napoleon of the West,” Santa Anna — who served as president of Mexico in multiple, non-consecutive terms — is infamous for losing control of Texas and the extensive territories of the U.S. Southwest in 1836.
