Description - On December 22, 1845, as troops under General Mariano Paredes y Arrillaga marched on the capital, President José Joaquín de Herrera called upon the nation to rally behind the federalist government. In his indictment of the rebels, Herrera drew a distinction between the revolt and “the magnificent and national effort of December 6th,”-- the coup d’état which had brought him to power a little more than a year earlier.
