BARRAGAN, Miguel (bar-rah-gan'), tenth president of Mexico, born in the state of San Luis potosi in 1789" died in Mexico, 1 March 1835. He entered the army, and soon won several promotions. In 1821 he was under the command of Iturbide, but was opposed to his coronation. Being appointed commander of Vera Cruz in 1824, he held the Spaniards entirely isolated in the San Juan de Ulua castle until famine and epidemics forced them to surrender. Political troubles soon compelled Barragan to leave the country; but afterward he was recalled by Santa Anna, and in the absence of this general he was entrusted with the presidency of the republic, which he filled with remarkable ability until his death.
