José Urrea

Lifespan: (1797 – 1849)
Profession: Regular army officer


José de Urrea (1797-1849) was a soldier who was born in the Garrison of Tucson. He started out as a cadet of the Presidial Company of San Rafael Buenavista in 1809. In 1811 he fought against the insurgents in the south of Sinaloa. He became a lieutenant in 1816 fighting in Jalisco and Michoacán. Urrea seconded the Plan of Iguala in 1821 and was a participant of the Plan of Casa Mata in 1823. He was also active in the siege of San Juan de Ulúa and he was affiliated to the Plan of Montaño. At one point Urrea left military service temporarily, rejoining in 1829 to fight alongside Santa Anna against Isidro Barradas. He also intervened in the Plan of Jalapa against Guerrero’s government. When Anastasio Bustamante was victorious, Urrea became the Secretary of the Command of Durango. He was lieutenant colonel in 1831, and in July 1832 he pronounced alongside Santa Anna for Gómez Pedraza. He deposed Governor Pescador to put in his place Francisco Elorriaga. In 1834 he took over the leadership of the Permanent Regiment of Cuautla. He attained the rank of general in July 1835 and was sent to Durango to fight the Comanches. Here he became commander general and governor from September to November 1835. Urrea took part in the 1836 Texas expedition and fought in El Alamo, Goliad, San Patricio and San Antonio Béjar. In 1837 he was named Commander of Sinaloa and Sonora. On 27 December he rebelled once more, handed over power to the vice-governor and marched towards Mazatlán where he was defeated. He fled to Guaymas and then on to Durango. He rebelled again in 1839 and was pursued and imprisoned in Perote. He was afterwards imprisoned in Durango and his supporters were used for another uprising in 1840. In 1842 he became governor of Sonora up until May 1844. In 1846 Urrea fought in the Mexican-American War. His life ended in 1849.
