The performance of field marshal José de la Cruz Fernández in the ten years 1812 to 1821, where he had his negative and positive impacts as him being the three viceroys. They were stationed in Guadalajara for years, until in 1822. New Spain had to leave it due to the victory of the Trigarante Army, independentista, of Agustín de Iturbide in 1821. The military system that Cruz followed in the territory of his command was his own to confront the constant dissemination of insurgent sheaves by the same. For this reason, it was fundamentally subdivided into five divisions, the last one being garrisoned in Guadalajara. And then, each division in turn commanded proportionate detachments at various points on its course to effectively destroy the various rebel parties. It was very logical that this should proceed. It was clear that the most critical line of the territory under Cruz's command was that border between Nueva Galicia and the provinces of Guanajuato and Valladolid.
