The Liberals who wanted a Federalist government free of Military control that limited the power of the Catholic Church and granted freedom of religion. The Conservatives wanted a monarchy and both the Catholic Church and the Mexican military to retain their traditional powers. The result was a Civil War which they choose to name in history as the Reform War.
