AMPUDIA, Pedro de, Mexican soldier. He was made a general by Santa Anna in 1840, led a foray on the Texas frontier under the command of General Woll in 1842, took a prominent part in the conflicts with the Texan forces under Summerville, and in December 1842, commanded the land forces in the siege of Campeachy, Yucatan. He was compelled to retreat by Com. Moore on 26 June 1843, and went to Tabasco, where in 1844 he aroused great indignation by his cruel execution of General Sentmanat, who had attacked the town. He was dismissed from his command, but on 11 April 1846, appeared before Matamoras as a general in the army under Arista. He was given command of Monterey, but, after a spirited defense, surrendered to General Taylor, 24 September 1846.
