Monterrey Mexico History
It borders the United States of America (Texas) and is located in the state of Nuevo Leon, Mexico, south of the border between Mexico City and the US state of Texas. It is not surprising, as it is set in a region with a long history of conflict between the states of Veracruz and San Luis Potosi, both not far from Nunez, and both on the western border of the state of Mexico, not too far from the Texas border.
The capital of Nuevo Leon is Monterrey, a city of about 1.5 million inhabitants and the second largest city in the state. It is also home to the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), which now has several universities throughout the country, including a huge complex in Mexico City.
At the end of the 20th century, the University of Monterrey and the Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo Leon merged to form a single national school, the EGADE Business School.
Subsequently, the Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo Leon (UANL) was founded in the city of Monterrey, Mexico, as the first public university in Mexico.
If you pass by, you will notice that Monterrey is more like the United States and less like Mexico, but it has grown over the years. Three million people live in the metropolitan area, and the former neighbouring city is now part of Montersrey itself. Known as La Maestranza, it was originally developed as a 19th century steel foundry and houses one of the largest steel mills in the world and the second largest in Mexico.
During the Spanish colonial period, Monterrey remained small and perhaps 75 percent of the population was rural, the rest found its way to the capital Nuevo León. This changed after the Mexican War of Independence, which only allowed the country to strengthen its position as one of Mexico's most important cities. Montersrey is still the second largest city in Mexico after Mexico City and the third largest in the United States, behind New York City and San Francisco, but it is the only city with a population of more than 1.5 million people. It is also home to a large number of indigenous peoples, many of whom come from Nui and León.
After the end of the revolution, Nuevo Leon became a livestock state and Monterrey consolidated its position as an important center of cotton production in Mexico. Domestic production of raw cotton, supplied to factories in Michoacan, Queretaro, Puebla and Veracruz, was scarce; imports from the southern United States were common. Mexico's more open trade policy has allowed cosmopolitan peoples to include Americans, the Californians known as the Yanquis. It produced so much cotton that the mechanized factory regime began with great difficulty to supply first the spinning mill and then the weaving mill.
In Coahuila, Nuevo Leon, Tamaulipas and Texas, an unusual ethnic mix emerged. To build the cities of Monterrey and Cerralvo, the Spaniards captured Indians to sell them as slaves in the mines of Zacatecas.
It produced the largest quantity of gold, silver, copper, gold and other precious metals in the world, as well as silver and copper ore.
The border with Mexico was more than $2,000 last year, $36,000 higher than the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Customers were the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, China, Japan and South Africa.
At the end of the 19th century, new railways between Mexico City and Monterrey contributed to industrialization. Caterpillar was part of Mexico's growth, with the first product from Mexico sold in 1897 by the US company Caterpillars Manufacturing Company, Inc., which sold its first products in Mexico. In 1903, the world's first factory for the production of steel and steel products was opened in Montersrey. By the 1920s, the industry was well established and the company's second plant, a steel mill in San Luis Potosi, Mexico, was opened.
Monterrey became the capital of the Mexican state of Nuevo Leon, but it was not until 1821 that it became a province independent of Mexico. The name "Cartel del Golfo" was taken over for the controlling group, and forces loyal to Spain regained control of the entire region.
In April 1822, the people of Monterey learned that Mexico had won its war of independence from Spain. Mexican troops were waiting for them, units fighting the Americans, and California pledged allegiance to the Mexican government. Much of Taylor's army was removed to be deployed in the invasion of central Mexico. The fighting took place in Monterrey, San Luis Obispo, Santa Cruz, El Paso and San Diego.
With the success of his guerrilla tactics, Pancho Villa launched an attack on the Mexican capital, Monterrey, that would deal a massive blow to the Carranza government. The first destination was the capital of the state of Nuevo Leon, a small town in central Mexico. When Miguel Hidalgo, who had rebelled against the "Spanish power," came to Montersrey, the governor of Nueva Leon was (Santa Maria) sent Commander Juan Ignacio Ramon to keep the insurgents at bay. Mexican forces, but they realized they were venturing into open fields north of the city and that it would be easier.
