General Stephen Watts Kearny Liberates Santa Fe
On August 18, 1846, General Stephen W. Kearny (1794-1848) used diplomatic finesse, rather than military might, to persuade more powerful Mexican forces to withdraw from Santa Fe during the Mexican War (1846-1848). General Kearny was able to take the city without firing a shot. After taking control of Santa Fe, Kearny established a civil government and promised a democratic administration of the area. These actions secured popular support for the U.S. government and its troops. The general went on to play a key role in the U.S. victory in the Mexican War.
