Know how Central America was different from other regions in regards to its independence
it has to do with the debate of liberalism and corporate model that played out by a region that was mainly loyalist
Mexico fought and got its independence and wanted to liberate CA from spain and incldue them in the mexican empire
for guatemala the issue was not about acheiving independece from spanish crown but how not to become a part of mexico.
- The central government, formerly in Guatemala, was then divided its nation into three comandancias of administrative power in order to not become annexed to mexico:
- Ciudad Real
- Guatemala city
Mexico invaded El Salvador and absolute independence was declared. Chiapas elected to remain a part of Mexico, while other five states formed the United Provinces of Central America.
