REVOLUTION AND REBELLION
How Taxes Cost A Governor His Life in 1830s New Mexico
By Frank McCulloch
"REVOLUTION AND REBELLION provides a fascinating...look at the political complexities and social patterns in place at a time when New Mexico was emerging into its own identity yet still deeply infused with the flavors of Spain and Mexico. With fact-based literary imagination, McCulloch creates dialogue and offers vivid physical descriptions. This is a book that brings the past to life. Perhaps it also explains why most New Mexico governors, of they know their history, have attempted to lower the state's taxes rather than raise them. (Gussie Fauntleroy, THE NEW MEXICAN)

The year is 1835, the place New Mexico, the hero or villain, depending upon your view is Don Albino Perez. Perez, the newly appointed Mexican governor, is more of an idealist than a politician. He rides north with high hopes for his new office in a strange land. After reaching New Mexico and assuming his duties, Perez finds he has a strong and forceful opponent in the former governor, Don Manuel Armijo. Armijo, who enjoys popular support, is determined to sabotage all of Perez's programs. His big opportunity comes when Perez puts into effect a vast taxation plan that touches everybody's pocketbooks. Feelings run high and Armijo seizes the moment to act. Perez is captured and beheaded. His short two-year chapter in New Mexico history with its political turmoil and intrigue is ended.
FRANK McCULLOCH, well-known writer of New Mexico history, did extensive research on this fascinating era in New Mexico. He was also fortunate to obtain firsthand accounts of the events from the granddaughter of Don Albino Perez.
