The Formation of the Federal Republic

The Formation of the Federal Republic

(p.305) Chapter 9 The Formation of the Federal Republic
“We Are Now the True Spaniards”
Stanford University Press

This chapter explains how Mexico, utilizing the institutions established by the Constitution of Cádiz, formed a federal republic in 1824. The Mexican Constitution of 1824 was based on the Hispanic Constitution of 1812 because distinguished novohispanos, who had participated in writing the Charter of Cádiz, wrote the Mexican federal constitution. Mexico implemented the institutions created by the Constitution of 1812 more fully than any other nation in the Hispanic world, including Spain itself. Indeed, most Mexicans considered the Charter of Cádiz their first constitution.
