      Kraus Reprint Corporation. Cortina had sworn he would kill these men for stealing land from the Mexican Americans. Cortina's enemies had fled in the meantime, and during the occupation of Brownsville, he issued a famous proclamation to reveal his intentions to both communities. Juan Nepomuceno Cortina Goceoscochea, by Ing. It was the internal politics of Mexico that eventually led to his arrest and imprisonment. Orderly people and honest citizens are inviolable to us in their persons and interests.

      This alliance was short-lived, and soon Cortina rose against the French. Is this so to remain? The First Cortina War had finished, and with increasing pressure from both the United States and Mexican Government to cease all hostile activities, Cortina remained away from the scene for more than a year. With the end of the War and the signing of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo on February 2,the Cortina family estates were divided by the new frontier, leaving a vast portion of their lands inside the United States territory. Although some elite Mexican residents of Texas opposed Cortina and quietly aided his opponents, the bulk of the tejano population supported him, often sending his troops supplies and refusing to help U.

      The result of the tension between Cortina and the Anglos was a series of retaliatory raids in which many on both sides were killed and that the disastrous intervention of the Texas Rangers led to resentment among the Tejanos against anglos even to this day. A militia company, the bombastic Brownsville Tigers, rode out into the brush to confront Cortina in camp. Except where otherwise indicated, Everything. With the end of the war and the signing of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo on February 2,the Cortina family estates were divided by the new frontier, leaving a vast portion of their lands inside the United States territory.
