Soon after, Santa Anna was once again asked to take control of the provisional
government as Bustamante's presidency turned chaotic. Santa Anna accepted and
became president for the fifth time. Santa Anna took over a nation with an empty
treasury. The war with France had weakened Mexico, and the people were discontented.
Also, a rebel army led by Generals Jose Urrea and José Antonio Mexía was marching
towards the Capital, at war against Santa Anna. The rebellion was crushed at the Battle
of Mazatlán, by an army commanded by the president himself.

Santa Anna's rule was even more dictatorial than his first administration. Anti-
Santanista newspapers were banned and dissidents jailed. In 1842, a military expedition
into Texas was renewed, with no gain but to further persuade the Texans of the benefits
of American annexation.
