The Mexican Monarchy Rebellion

In 1803 Napoleon III sold Louisiana to the United States, the only substantial land in the new Americas that France had any claim to. In 1862, as the U.S. was beginning to fight a civil war, Napoleon III moved French soldiers to Mexico to rule the land and collect taxes on debt supposedly owed to several European countries. In 1864, Napoleon arranged to install Ferdinand Maximilian, from the Hapsburg royal family, as the Emperor of Mexico. As a puppet of the French, he allowed the French army to have free reign in Mexico to grab whatever wealth they could and return it to Europe.

Opposition to the Emperor quickly arose, and the French armies soon abandoned their efforts in Mexico, allowing Emperor Maximilian to fend for himself against the rebel Mexicans. After a rein of three years, President Benito Juarez returned to power, and the Monarchy of Mexico was gone forever.

In this historic adventure, Veronica Lake is the daughter of a wealthy Mexican silver mining family, and after spending years in the U.S., she and her mother are returning to their home in Mexico to get away from the war in the States. Unfortunately, instead of escaping a rebellious war, they are plunged into the center of the Mexican rebellion against the Monarchy, not knowing which side of the conflict to trust. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
