Mexico was confronted with a grave reconstruction problem after the war. Finances were devastated, and the prestige of the government, already weak, had considerably diminished. Santa Anna, compelled to resign after the war, returned from exile in 1853 and, with Centralist support, declared himself dictator. Early in 1854 a liberal revolt began, and after more than a year of intensive fighting, Santa Anna fled from Mexico. The revolution was the first event in a long, fierce struggle between the powerful classes that had traditionally dominated Mexico and the liberal democrats who demanded a voice in the government.
