General Santa Anna?
Santa Anna was the leader of Mexico during the Texas Revolution and the Mexican-American War. When Texas wished independence from Mexico, Santa Anna mobilized troops. Most famous of the battles in the Texas Revolution was the Alamo, where Santa Anna killed everyone on the opposing side. He was, however, defeated in the end and Texas gained independence. When Texas was annexed to the United States, however, Santa Anna was mad again, and attacked when President Polk walked American troops into disputed territories. Led primarily by General Winfield Scott, the Americans thrashed the Mexicans and Santa Anna was wrenched from power.
