Luis G. Osello

Lifespan: (1828 – 1858)


Luis Gongoza Osollo (1828-1858) was a soldier born in Mexico City. His parents were Francisco Osollo and Gabriela Pancorvo. He joined the military college in 1839. He fought in the Mexican-American War (1846-48). He was a member of the conservative party and fought against the partisans of the 1854 Plan de Ayutla. When this movement triumphed he was exiled to the United States of America. President Comonfort sent him money to return to Mexico but he turned this offer down. He later returned incognito to the country to fight for the conservatives. In 1856 Osollo took part in the battle of Puebla as colonel and led a battalion that caused great destruction amongst the liberal forces. The conservatives were eventually vanquished. In 1858 he was instrumental in the drafting of the pronunciamiento of Zuloaga: 11 January Plan of Tacubaya. He became general in 1858. On 10 March of this same year he beat the liberal army in Salamanca defeating General Anastasio Parrodi’s forces. He marched on towards Guadalajara, and captured the city on the 23 March. Osollo was military commander of the City of Mexico and chief of operations of the North. After the triumph of Guadalajara he named new authorities for Jalisco. He was one of the high ranking officers who aided Félix Zuloaga in overthrowing Ignacio Comonfort in 1858. He took charge of the troops that took over San Luis Potosí. He died of typhus in this city. He was considered to be an eminent tactical strategist and his death represented a severe blow to the Conservative party.
